Transmission Fluid Leaking
A transmission fluid leak is not something to ignore.
The transmission fluid serves several purposes of critical importance to the life of your transmission.
- The fluid transfers power from the engine to the transmission, and provides the necessary pressure to operate the transmission.
- Transmission fluid also cools and lubricates the transmission.
As the amount of transmission fluid goes down, the ability to operate and keep the transmission cool is reduced. Overheating quickly causes damage to a transmission that may ultimately result in the need for a costly repair.
Leaks can occur from several different areas external to the transmission, or they may be internal to the transmission. The repairs required could be relatively minor, or the signs could point to a major problem. It takes an expert to tell.
Regardless of what the source of the leak is, it requires immediate attention. The longer the leak continues, the more damage that may result. Trust the expert transmission technicians at AAMCO to get you and your vehicle back on the road as soon as possible.
