How to Fix a Transmission Leak
Most automatic transmission fluid leaks occur in the seals or gaskets â€“ the soft parts of the transmission, which over time can dry out and harden.
So, one option is to replace the faulty gasket or seal. Though the gasket or seal itself may not cost very much, it takes a lot of work to install it. The labor costs for such a repair are usually a couple of hundred bucks. Thatâ€™s far better than ignoring it and having to replace the whole transmission, but thereâ€™s an easier and even less expensive way to handle the problem.
Tranny Honey (yup, thatâ€™s its name) is an automatic transmission fluid treatment thatâ€™s designed to automatically stop transmission leaks. Besides stopping leaks, it also conditions old transmission fluid and smooths rough shifting. It costs just a few dollars, and more importantly, itâ€™s so easy that anyone can use it: just pour it into the transmission.
Weâ€™re not saying itâ€™s magic. As with any leak stopper, it may not work on some leaks, especially big ones. But it works in most cases, and since it can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in repair costs, itâ€™s definitely worth giving a try.
You can find Tranny Honey in these stores.
