Q: Transmission leak

asked by on

The transmission is leaking. It might be the gasket.

The pan is the most common leak area on these transmissions, but it would need to be inspected to see if the case, or filter, is the cause of the leak. If you are low on fluid, I recommend that you use only the recommended fluids to keep the transmission full until you get the transmission leak diagnosed and fixed by a certified mechanic.
