2010 Nissan Altima leaks trans fluid

Car is leaking transmission fluid out

how much? a lot…dont drive it , have it towed to a tranny shop.
a drop… could be a gasket that needs to be replaced or a seal.
really need more info

You really should get that fixed.


Most leaks are comparatively inexpensive to fix. The exception would be a front pump (a.k.a. torque converter) seal which requires removal of the transmission.

The real unknown here is that none of us know what is leaking due to lack of information and the real fly in the ointment; how long you have operated the transmission with a low fluid level. Low fluid can kill an automatic in minutes; not hours.


Worse, this is a CVT with a history of problems.
