My car is leaking transmission fluid. What is the source of the problem?Transmission fluid plays a crucial role in the healthy operation of your transmission. It provides lubrication, fluid pressure, cooling, and rust prevention. To minimize the risk of transmission problems, it's very important that you're driving with the proper amount of clean transmission fluid. If your car has a transmission fluid leak, it should be addressed by a mechanic ASAP. But if the leak goes unnoticed or ignored, it could leak to major transmission problems. In the event that you need a replacement transmission, you'll want to order from a reputable supplier. At Total Transmission Supply, we ship expertly rebuilt transmissions to anywhere in the country.

Common Sources of Transmission Fluid Leaks

In your transmission, there are various seals/gaskets from which a transmission fluid leak may form. If you have a seal with degraded rubber, then a leak may develop due to misalignment. In some cases, valves/solenoids are where leaks come from. Valves/solenoids are integral to the successful transport of fluid between transmission parts, so it's crucial that they're in healthy condition.

Faulty transmission pan gaskets are also often to blame for leaking transmission fluid. This gasket creates the seal between the bell housing and transmission pan. Standard wear and tear can cause a leak to form from this gasket. Transmission fluid lines are another common source of leaks. Because these lines transport fluid between transmission components, they need to be in strong shape. A cracked transmission line can lead to the formation of a leak. Also, a cracked bell housing could cause transmission fluid to begin leaking.
