Red liquid leaking between transmission and engine
I have an Automatic 2005 Ford Focus. Last time that I was for an oil change, I was told that my transmission is leaking and they showed me a minor leak around the seal between the engine and tranmission blocks underneath- I guess it is under torque converter area. I was told that the seal needs to be replaced and for that, the transmission should be removed and reinstalled which takes about 8 hours. With parts and everything it is around $1,000. I was also told that there might be a bigger problem in transmission that they would know when they open it up that may cost me up to $1,500 more. The transmission changes gear ok, colour of oil is red,no burned oil. I would like to know if the leak could be for anything else. If it is not, do I need to change the seal at this time or I can just monitor the oil level and add up oil as needed(the leak is minor, I may lose 1/2 litre in 6 month)
Is this a good question?
