A loose pan can cause the transmission to leak.  Sometimes this is because there are bolts that are not tight enough. Another cause of a transmission leak could be because of a loose pan gasket. Also debris in the road can lead to damage and cause leaking.

Delay in Movement Of The Vehicle

This is occurs when putting your vehicle into park or drive and it takes a little time before it actually engages. Replacing the clutch is usually the proper fix.

The Gears Slip

It is imperative that you have your vehicle looked at if this is occurring. It is not only a sign that the transmission is bad but its a major safety risk.

Grinding or Shaking
