    Car Auto Transmission Fluid Leak Repairs in Hamilton

    About automatic transmission fluid:transmission fluid repairs Hamiltob

    Automatic transmission fluid is a slick liquid with an oil-like consistency and is usually red in colour when new. It acts as a lubricant for all the moving parts within your car’s auto transmission system. Transmission fluid also aids in the transfer of energy between the car’s engine and transmission system.

    Automatic transmission fluid should be changed every 60,000-100,000km. Transmission fluid changes in Hamilton >

    In automatic transmissions, the transmission fluid also acts as a coolant, preventing various parts from reaching high temperatures.

    An automatic transmission fluid leak can lead to serious problems in your auto transmission system. Transmission fluid leaks can usually be identified by a pool of red/brown liquid appearing under your car. You can diagnose a transmission fluid leak by:

    • Checking the colour and consistency of the fluid leaking.
    • Checking transmission fluid levels with the dipstick.
    • Taking note of any suspicious symptoms while driving.

     

    Causes of a transmission fluid leak:

    • Leak in the pan – The transmission pan is subject to wear and tear over time. Leaks can be caused by small puncture holes  in the transmission pan.
    • Loose bolts/plugs – If the transmission bolts or drain plugs are not properly tightened, transmission fluid will leak out.
    • Damaged fluid lines – The transmission’s fluid lines can be damaged by heat or debris, causing fluid to leak. Debris on the road can puncture fluid lines at high speeds. High levels of heat can cause cracks in the line as well.
    • Worn seals – Seals are used to keep the transmission fluid in the pan. These seals can eventually wear, causing leaks to occur.
    • Transmission fluid cooler leaks – it the car has a transmission fluid cooler it can develop leaks over time through impacts with object, or general vibration and heating and cooling.
