Question type: General

weeks. What needs to be done and coast.

Possible the pan gasket is leaking. The gasket is included in a transmission filter kit. Have your mechanic drain the fluid and replace your filter and a new gasket. Add new fluid without the stop leak.

All I can say is take it to the shop ASAP or it will cost you a lot I just got mine rebuilt it cost me exactly what I don't have which is 1600.00 because my tranny seal messed up and the pump went out them fluid in the converter check your tranny fluid if it looks orange then take it to the shop

Axle, input shaft or pan seals could be the cause. Since it is on the driver side I would suspect the left axle seal. Requires some special tools to change but most are available at your local Advance or Auto Zone loaner tool program. Keep an eye on your fluid level, though because both answers above and absolutely correct! Good Luck!
