Recognizing the signs

Recognizing the signs of a transmission fluid leak is the first step in addressing the issue promptly. One of the most apparent signs is a low transmission fluid level, which can be detected by checking the dipstick or the transmission fluid level indicator on the dashboard. If you notice a significant drop in the fluid level, it’s highly likely that your car has a transmission fluid leak. At Express Auto Care, our skilled technicians can perform a thorough inspection to pinpoint the source of the leak and recommend the necessary repairs.

Another indication of a transmission fluid leak is the color of the fluid itself. Transmission fluid is typically red or pink, but if you observe a reddish-brown color, it may signify a leak. Contamination or oxidation can cause the fluid to change its color, indicating a potential problem. By closely examining the color and consistency of the transmission fluid, our experts can determine if a leak is present and take appropriate action.

Unusual noises emanating from the transmission system can also be a sign of a transmission fluid leak. Grinding or whining noises during gear shifts may indicate inadequate lubrication, which can occur when there is a leak in the transmission system. Our team at Express Auto Care has the experience and knowledge to diagnose these noises accurately and address any underlying issues.

In addition, a transmission fluid leak can lead to slipping gears, making it difficult for your vehicle to maintain proper gear engagement. This can result in poor performance and potential safety hazards on the road. Similarly, a delay in gear shifting or the inability to shift gears altogether can be indicative of a transmission fluid leak. These issues should not be ignored, as they can significantly impact your driving experience and the overall functionality of your vehicle’s transmission system.

When you bring your vehicle to Express Auto Care, our skilled technicians follow a comprehensive approach to address a low transmission fluid level caused by a leak. We begin by parking your vehicle on a flat surface and engaging the parking brake to ensure safety. Then, we locate the transmission dipstick and check the fluid level indicated on it. If the level is below the recommended range, our experts will proceed with adding the correct type of transmission fluid specified in your vehicle’s owner’s manual. We understand the importance of using the right transmission fluid to ensure optimal performance and prevent further damage.

After adding fluid, we recheck the fluid level to ensure it falls within the appropriate range. However, it’s important to note that simply adding more transmission fluid may not be a permanent solution. Our team at Express Auto Care goes the extra mile to identify and repair the source of the leak to prevent future complications. Transmission fluid leaks can occur from various points in the transmission system, such as the pan gasket, seals, or cooler lines. Our qualified mechanics conduct a thorough inspection to locate the precise source of the leak and provide effective repairs.
