Have you noticed a transmission fluid leakage and you don't know whether you can manage the car to your next destination or simply park the car to fix it first?
Transmission oil leakage can be minor or major but not fixing it will eventually lead to destruction of the transmission.
Even if the leakage is minor, it should be fixed immediately.
CAUSES OF LEAKAGE AND AREAS WHERE IT CAN OCCUR:
1. Leak in oil pan due to impact with rocks, curbs and so on..
2. Leak in cooler line. The cooler line that routes the oil from the transmission to the oil cooler can develop leaks.
3. Leak in transmission oil cooler itself. This is possible when there is internal rupture in the oil cooler itself. When this happens, the transmission oil might find its way into the cooling system and you will notice that the coolant will become milky, oily, muddy or brownish.
4. Leak in radiator. While some cars use the cooling system radiator to exchange heat between the transmission oil and coolant, some other cars have dedicated radiators to cool the transmission oil. Either of them can leak.
