Why won't my car hold transmission fluid?


Asked by Jul 25, 2016 at 12:25 AM about the 2009 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car was driven from Indianan to Tennessee and back to Indiana.  At some
point on the way back to Indiana the car started making noise and drinking
oil and transmission fluid.  The check engine light is also on.  What
happened and how do we fix it?

CEL Is on? So you scan the car for the codes to help tell you what the issue is. Leaking oil and trans is not good, replace the gaskets. If you don't see any leaking oil or fluid, check your coolant. It might be mixing with the cooling system.


What Engine is in this vehicle? How many miles on this vehicle. Did you run out of engine oil?
