Transmission Leaking: Having the proper amount of transmission fluid is essential to the normal operation of the transmission. The transmission fluid has three main purposes. It transmits power, acts as a heat exchanger and lubricates. A transmission that is leaking can have an adverse effect on any or all of these functions. So, as soon as you detect a leak, it is important that you have the vehicle inspected to determine the source of the leak.
A transmission leaking from any one of the nine to eleven external areas, many of which are considered minor. We also know that where a transmission leaks from and from where it drips can be two different areas. Leaks maybe caused by problems other than seals. Leaks, many times, DO NOT indicate a serious problem. On the other hand, leaks maybe the result of a more serious mechanical failure. An inspection by a qualified technician is the best way to tell. The important thing is to get those leaks stopped as soon as they become apparent or major trouble is almost sure to follow.
