There is a oil leak under my car should I worry about it? I'm taking my car into my macanich tommorow or Wednesday. Also how do I check my transmission fluid are ther any pics for that?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Cristine, Oil leaks should always be addressed, hopefully an inspection from your mechanic will reveal that it may be something small like your valve covers, or an oil pan gasket. Transmission fluid can be checked by a red labeled dipstick, and should be the ONLY fluid level checked while the vehicle is running.
