What Could Cause a Transmission Leak?

1334Ask anyone who knows cars what kind of leak they dread the most, and they’ll probably say an automatic transmission fluid leak. Automatic transmissions are incredibly complex, and they’re not easily accessible.

If you have to drop a transmission and replace lines or a seal, you’re looking at a lot of time, money and effort. Your vehicle will also be out of service for a long time. Since some transmission aren’t easily serviced, even if you’re mechanically inclined, you’ll likely have to take it to a professional transmission shop and pay their high rates.

There are several symptoms of a transmission fluid leak to watch out for:

  • You see a ‘low transmission fluid level’ light on newer cars or a low level on the dipstick when you check the level manually under the hood.
  • There’s a performance problem related to your transmission (difficulty shifting into or out of park, rough shifts, decreased fuel economy, etc.)
  • You find a noticeable leak underneath your vehicle, in your garage, driveway or parking space — in some cases your fluid may not leak unless your car is running.
