A Leaky Transmission Means it’s Time for a Repair
Besides the engine, your transmission is one of the most integral components of your entire vehicle which is why it is always important to make sure it is running properly. The transmission is also one of the most complicated parts of your car which is why it helps to know how it works. One of the first signs you can tell if your cars transmission is acting faulty is if you’ve been noticing your car is leaving spots on your driveway or other places you may park for extended periods of time. It’s usually a red oily puddle or stain that will appear underneath your car where the transmission would be, and if so then bring it in to the shop at 2J’s Automotive and let the mechanics take a look at it.
Transmission Fluid Guide
If you’re only noticing a couple of drops then you may be able to delay expensive repairs by checking your fluid levels to make sure they aren’t too low. Since the transmission has so many different parts to it a fluid leak might not necessarily damage the transmission itself. However, it’s other parts connected to it that could lead to an entire transmission removal.
Most common repairs can be done at the shop without having to take out the transmission, but certain leaks can damage the area between the transmission and engine which would require the entire transmission to be removed. The time and cost to repair the leaky transmission is big enough to make an important decision on where you’re going to take your car to get serviced.
