Just recently, my Taurus began leaking transmission fluid. I never would of known if not for all the snow in my driveway (I live in Maine). When moving the car for plowing a week ago, I noticed the leak. Car was running fine otherwise. I checked the fluid level and it too was fine. Two days later I noticed it hesitated to go, only doing so around 50-60mph. The next day on my same route to work it had no hesitation.
Now it seems to be leaking more. I've made an appt. With my mechanic but it's not until Tues. 3/5/13. I've stopped driving it for fear of harming the engine. But it's also my only vehicle & we live in the country, 30mins. From town. I don't even dare to take it to work.
I know it's not a lot to go on but hopefully you can steer me in the direction(s) of possibilities that could have gone wrong with the transmission. Please.
I recently put $800+ into this car & I'm tapped. Any help & suggestions you may provide would be greatly appreciated!
