Question Tranny fluid question.

Hello, my the transmission in my '02 vulcan has required that the fluid be added to in the past few weeks., but does not seem to be leaking, at least there is nothing on the driveway. Anyone have any idea where its going? Thanks in advance!

Are you sure you're checking it the right way each time? If you check it cold with the engine running it will seem low. You have to drive the car 20 minutes or more then check it hot in gear.

If the front seal is leaking, it would be dripping from under the flex-plate area with the starter.

Yes sir I wait until it reaches operating temperature before checking. there are no visable leaks anywhere and the tranns slips until fluid is added!BTW thanks for the reply!
