Some things that cause transmission seals to break include wearing, cracking, fraying and warping. Transmission seals can become damaged over time because they are regularly exposed to high temperatures.
Faulty or damaged transmission seals cause transmission fluid to leak from the system. These leaks can occur in numerous places including the input and output shafts, speedometer gear inputs, and tail housing gaskets.
Broken transmission seals should be replaced or repaired immediately because leaking transmission fluid is harmful to the environment and may also cause a car to break down. Pep Boys offers both automatic and manual replacement transmission seals. Alternatively, Lucas Transmission Fix repairs most transmission seals, eliminating the need to replace them.
