A minor transmission fluid leak can usually be fixed in about an hour. However, if you've found us because your car is burning through your transmission fluid, you may want to bring it in for service.

Checking For a Transmission Oil Leak

So what should you do if you suspect your car, truck or SUV has a transmission fluid leak?

A few simple things you can do from your driveway to quickly check for a leak is to check the transmission oil level:

  • Check your transmission fluid dipstick

If you suspect a transmission leak, the first diagnosis is checking the dipstick and transmission fluid level.

Usually, when checking transmission fluid, the engine should be warm and running. Remove the dipstick, wipe it clean, then re-insert it and check that the fluid level is between the dipstick markers.

The fluid should be bright red. Burnt or dark transmission fluid should be replaced. If it needs topping up, make sure not to overfill. Overfilling transmission fluid can actually cause a leak.

  • Check underneath your car for reddish brown fluid

Another simple diagnosis of leaking transmission fluid is checking the ground for oil spots beneath the vehicle.

If you notice (fresh) oil spots, check all engine fluids to ensure all oil levels are topped up.

  • Check for dashboard warning lights

Another visual inspection to check for an oil leak is your dashboard warning lights.

Any potential  issues with your vehicle including low fluid, may illuminate a transmission light or engine light.

If a warning light comes on, its a good idea to visit us for diagnosing the check engine light for a transmission oil leak and fix the problem.
