By checking your transmission fluid once a month, you can greatly extend the lifespan of your vehicle. To check your automatic transmission fluid, open your hood and find the ATF dipstick. Remove the dipstick, wipe with a clean rag, reinsert, and then check to see that the fluid hits the “full” marking. For a detailed explanation on how to check your transmission fluid, check out this short video clip.

Transmission fluid is a vital component of your car’s major internal systems. If you have a transmission leak, driving with low fluid can cause serious car problems that will need to be addressed by your mechanic right away. Here’s how a transmission leak can lead to major car problems:
Lubrication Issues One of the primary functions of transmission fluid is to lubricate the moving parts of your transmission. When you drive your car with low fluid, your transmission parts experience friction, excessive wear, and overheating. Without lubrication, your transmission will not be able to function properly and will subsequently break down.
Oxidation and Debris Transmission fluid also prevents the internal components of your transmission from oxidizing or getting clogged with debris. When transmission fluid is low, dirt, rust, and other contaminants begin to build up in your system. All of this sludge and oxidization can cause your transmission and other engine components to seize up, making your vehicle impossible to drive.
Problems with Maneuverability Driving with little or no transmission fluid will make your car increasingly hard to maneuver. As your transmission components wear together, the gears will slip and break down. You may notice that the gears grind together when shifting, or you may experience other unpleasant sensations getting in and out of gear. Eventually, this wear and abuse will cause your transmission to break down entirely, requiring costly repairs for your vehicle.
