I've only had the car for a few months but I noticed that the transmission fluid seems to be leaking, although I'm not sure from where. This transmission came to me with 250,000 miles on it and I have no idea when it last had a fluid change but it was a company car, so I hope they took regular care of it. Anyway, I was planning to do a quick drain and refill and was thinking of replacing the filter as well, in case that is leaking.
I got a WIX filter from my local store that has a rubber gasket. Should I use this or would you recommend I go to the dealer and get an OEM filter with the cork gasket?
Also, any other common leak areas I should check? I'll admit I haven't laid underneath yet to try and find the leak but I did replace the whole engine back in November so it's possible something happened then?
