    Have them show you?Get WRITTEN estimate. Get it fixed before it costs you a trans.

    After the oil was changed there were no puddles for four days. On the fifth day there was a leak of at least two feet long. I touched the puddle and it was clearly the new oil. the next day there was only a dinner plate size puddle. I have an apt at the service dept for tomorrow. What's your guess.
