2002 Lexus ES300 Question: problem with transmission pan seal

My check engine light just went on. I was told several months ago that I would be needing a transmission pan seal...could this be why the light went on? -
Answer 1
Probably not, unless you've lost so much fluid that the transmission is not functioning properly setting diagnostic codes and turned the light on. More likely, you have an engine/emissions system control fault and the computer has detected it, turning on the light, storing diagnostic codes and data which could be accessed by a technician with a scanner. If you want to find a specialist, here's a directory link for you: https://repairpal.com/directory?address=33301&car_brand_names=Lexus PS: Be sure that the transmission fluid is up to level in order to avoid transmission damage due to low fluid. -
Answer 2
No. The light came on because of an internal problem. It could be a solenoid or clutch plate problem. You need ot read the code first and then go from there -
