Transmission fluid leakage is one of the major problems in a transmission system. There are many reasons behind this. Let’s look at some of the major source:
Loosely tightened bolts – Transmission fluid leaks mainly occur due to loosely tightening bolts while changing transmission fluid filter. To avoid such leakage ensure that the bolts are properly stiffened.
Damaged seals or gaskets – Another common reason for transmission fluid leakage is damaged seals or gaskets. Transmission fluid will ooze out through the worn out seals or gaskets. Such leakage can be avoided by replacing gaskets.
Fault in the torque converter body – One of the main reasons behind transmission fluid leakage. This is very difficult to diagnose and cost high to repair.
