Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. Sorry to hear that. It sounds like your transmission oil pan got damaged and you lost all your fluid. The smoking was probably all the fluid getting all over your exhaust and burning off.
well, the leak depends on what got damaged. If it's just a damaged pan, then it's not that hard to replace the pan. My concern is transmission damage from driving it without fluid. Those clutches burn out very easily. All you can do is figure out where all the fluid came from, and fix it and hope that your transmission did not get damaged. Unfortunately, odds are that it did get damaged. Have you looked under the car yet to see what happened?
Sorry for the delay. computer crashed. hopefully it's just a matter of replacing the pan and filling it up with fluid. Usually though when something like this happens the clutches get way too hot and burn up. I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed for you.
It could have also blown a transmission line. You might be ok if it didn't lose that much before you stopped driving it.
what did you find out?
