TRANSMISSION FAILING OR NOT ENOUGH FLUID, CAR****** WHEN CHANGING GEARS

1997 Ford Festiva • FWD Automatic • 166,000 miles

Hi there, my girlfriends car has always had a violent***** when changing gears. 1 morning the car decided not to move. I came to have a look and the car would rev up but wouldn't move, I checked the transmission fluid but couldn't see very much, I put in a litre of fluid in (maybe too much) and ran through the gears. It worked fine, but I found that there was transmission fluid all over the place, now it seems it is leaking fluid, I think I may have ruptured a gasket or something. I guess what I really would like to know is, was it the fluid that was causing the problem, or is the transmission in need of replacing?

thanks

Sounds like you need to find where its leaking at and fix that, if it continues to act get it replaced
