Transmissions, quite frankly, have a lot of moving components and parts inside it.  As with any other vehicle part of an engine, the transmission's moving parts will generate a great deal of heat as they rub together.  If you believe your vehicle is experiencing a transmission leak, please reach out to Roadrunner Transmission.  When a transmission leak isn't repaired promptly, can lead to larger issues with the transmission itself.

Transmission Leak Repair Issues

When the transmission is having transmission leak issues, this usually means the transmission needs to be lubricated in a similar way that the engine needs lubrication.  The difference is that the transmission will use transmission fluid as the lubricant instead of oil.

When you have an adequate amount of transmissin fluid, this will allow it to lessen the amount of friciton between components.  In turn, this keeps teh transmission cooler and operating properly.

Transmission Seals

Your vehicle’s transmission has a series of seals that are made from either rubber or metal. With an average temperature of 195 degrees Fahrenheit to 220 degrees Fahrenheit, things get pretty hot underneath your automobile’s hood and the seals are affected by this heat. The wear and tear can eventually crack the seals, especially the pan gasket, and transmission fluid will leak through them.

Transmission Lines

Much like your brake or coolant lines, transmission fluid travels through transmission lines to various areas in your transmission. These lines are made from aluminum or steel. These lines are extremely durable and built to last, but heat and age can cause them to crack. Once they do, well, you guessed it. Transmission fluid will leak out of them rather than circulate through the transmission.

Transmission Pump

Transmission fluid is pushed through the lines by the transmission pump. Because the pump is a workhorse it can be a common source of transmission fluid leaks. Usually, the body of the pump cracks somewhere and fluid leaks out of it or is pushed out when the pump propels the transmission fluid throughout the system. In this case, a new pump is generally in order.

Transmission Installation

Finally, installing a transmission is serious business and if it isn’t done properly, fluid will leak out of it. The most common source of a transmission leak due to faulty installation is from the transmission pan. The pan is not mounted correctly or incorrect bolts are used to secure it. Something as simple as these bolts will make transmission fluid leak from the pan. Hopefully, the bolts just need to be tightened.
