#1 Leaking automatic gearbox fluid?

Post by 2timcarman » Sun Aug 14, 2022 2:20 pm

My car is leaking red fluid onto my garage floor but I can't work out exactly where it's coming from!
Any idea's?

Put cardboard underneath to help identify where it’s coming from then clean up the area above and narrow down the search.

Thanks Geoff.
I cleaned things up a bit and discovered that the automatic gearbox sump gasket was leaking. |
I have now tightened the sump bolts up slightly more and will be ordering a new cork gasket as the present one looks as though it could do with replacing.
