Hi there! I would be Very grateful for your advice regarding conflicting repair recommendations I have been given about
my trans pan.
My VW dealership says I have a leak in the trans pan and need to replace it for $1,050. I then went to a VW repair shop for a 2nd opinion & they saw no seepage or leakage at all under the car. I took a look myself when the car was on the lift and saw no indication of moisture.
I called the dealership back & told them we saw nothing & the service mgr. Said, "You can't see the problem/leak from under the car. You need to look inside the engine. There is lubricant leaking in the connectors & wires and this is why you need a new transmission pan. Come in & I will show you."
I called the other mechanic back & he said "I would advise you to run from the dealership as fast as you can. Your car looks greatl to us."
I wonder who is right? This is so confusing. Should the t. Pan be replaced if there is some small leakage in the connectors?
