Transmission Fluid Leaking
The transmission fluid serves to cool and lubricate. A transmission leak, as with any transmission problem, is not something to ignore.
Bring your vehicle in if:
- There is a clicking noise in transmission while in 4-wheel drive
- There is a clunking from under the vehicle when you change gears
With an automatic transmission, the fluid also transfers power, and provides the necessary pressure to operate the transmission. As the amount of transmission fluid goes down, the ability to operate and keep the transmission cool is reduced.
- Overheating causes damage to a transmission that could ultimately cause a major repair
Regardless of the cause, transmission problems require immediate attention. The longer they are allowed to continue, the more damage they may cause. Before your vehicle becomes inoperative, take your car to the experts at AAMCO for an External Diagnostic Service. Our certified transmission technicians will help get your vehicle back on the road as soon as possible.
