Transmission – Fluid Level test
Checking the transmission fluid level is important. You need to check 2 things here. 1: You need to make sure that the fluid is not contaminated or discoloured and 2: at the same time make sure the fluid is not descending over a period of a week or a month. If you find that the transmission assembly is quite damp around the pan you need to have this seen to ASAP. A leaking transmission is dangerous as transmission fluid is highly flammable on a hot surface so that’s why you need to check this and have it rectified if you do notice any leaks.
