Is that on the right front side of the car?

Looks like the driver side front is that correct? Thanks I think that is where the leak is coming from.

Yes drivers side. Be aware that there is also a front seal that can look like a pan leak but it is behind the torque converter and that means that the tranny will have to come out to be replaced. One way to tell is, if it leaks when running and not while sitting then it is the front seal, a pan will leak slowly all the time.

Yeah it's leaking towards the front while sitting. So front pan seal leak?

Most likely. if you do fix it make sure you get a tranny filter kit and replace the filter screen while your there, and go with a kit that has a pan gasket not a tube of silicone sealer, that maybe the reason it is leaking now.

Ok I'll change all that. Are those items expensive?

Shouldn't be too bad, just make sure you get enough fluid to refill the tranny, the parts store should be able to give you that information. I hope your prepared to get slimy and have a adequate drain pan. You may want to watch a video on how this is done, you tube has some I think they are for an older PT Cruiser but the process is the same. Good Luck

Well since I'm a girl I won't be doing it but I'm going to have my uncle look at it too and take it to a garage. I don't have a lot of money but luckily I have friends that can do it for me all I have to do is buy the parts.
