2001 Ford Focus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 67000 miles
I recently noticed that my Focus was leaking fluid. It has had an issue lately with losing power steering fluid so I checked the reservoir first. It was a little low so I topped it off with Prestone power steering fluid that had a " stop leak" additive in it. After looking at the fluid on the driveway it had a reddish tint to it which I assume is the automatic transmission fluid.
What could be the cause of the leak? And, what should my next steps be with this problem? Can I simply get the transmission fluid changed which may fix the issue?
Thanks in advance!
