Hello,
I have just put a used transmission in my toyota camry and about 2 weeks after I installed it I was driving it and the car stopped pulling. Before it stopped pulling I noticed that I felt ginding in the shift knob inside the car. Aftedr I pulled over to side of road I look under car and I saw transmissio n fluid all over the road leading up to where I stopped and a puddle where I stopped. I checked fluid level and none showed up on the stick. When I poured fluid into the car ir ran out on the ground at a fast pace. I kept car running and in gear with brake on and I poured fluid into car and I could hear the gears trying to engage but the fluid was running out on the ground to fast.
what I wanted to know is what is the problem with the transmission and how could I fix it or can it be fixed? And if I had to take it somewhere to be fixed what would it cost to fix? Could I buy the part to fix transmission or do I need another transmission. I need the cheapest way out. Thank you

Hi daviddlw,

Thank you for the donation.

Without knowing where the leakages is coming from, it is not possible to gauge the extend of the fault and provide any estimates of the cost.

You need to locate the source and from the description, it is possible something inside the trans has given way causing the trans housing to be damaged thus the leaks.

Check and see where the leak is coming from and if it is from the oil pan, remove it to check.

I found that the fluid is coming from inside the trans. It is leaking where the motor meets the transmision, and the leaking is heavy. What do I need to do on this. Thanks

If the leak is from betwee the engine and trans, the most likely cause would be a bad torque converter seal.

To replace it you would have to remove the trans and torque converter.
