The main reason why your vehicle may be leaking transmission fluid is that there is a gap or break in your transmission system. Since your transmission system consists of multiple parts, it can be difficult to determine exactly where the gaps or breaks are stemming from.
The transmission pan, seals, pan gasket, torque converter, or fluid lines could all be the potential source of the leak. In some instances, these parts could be leaking due to wear and tear over time, or due to a puncture or loosely attached components.
Although it may not be critical to bring your vehicle in for service immediately, if a transmission leak goes unaddressed it will likely lead to further damage, including more costly repairs down the line. Staying on top of routine maintenance and addressing any issues as they arise will help ensure long-term vehicle health for miles to come.
To keep up to date with your vehicle’s transmission system, you can perform at-home inspections about once a month or every 5,000 to 10,000 miles. If you notice your transmission fluid is dark, cloudy, or has a burnt smell to it, this could indicate it’s time for a replacement.
Additionally, if you have trouble shifting gears and/or notice unusual sounds coming from your car, along with a transmission fluid leak, it’s a good idea to bring your car in for service.
