I was driving on ford rd and the car acted like it didn’t want to drive, I had to keep cutting it on and off to make it home ! Once at home I parked it no fluid has ever leaked from the dipstick. I paid a mechanic for my tune up … I believe he broke my transmission stick the bushing or whatever he said but the transmission fluid all came out after that and now the man doesn’t know why she still won’t get up to speed over 20 mph and now she is leaking from the picture attached below.

Hi,
Don't drive it until it is fixed, and the transmission fluid is refilled. As far as the dipstick tube is concerned, it really isn't hard to replace.

If you look at the pics below, they provide directions for replacing it. There is an O-ring where the tube presses into the transmission, so make sure to lubricate with ATF prior to installing it.

Let me know if this helps or if you have other questions. Also, you indicated a pic that was attached. It didn't show up, if possible, reload it and upload it so I can see what you're dealing with.

Take care,

Joe
