I pour the transmission fluid in, and it ends up in the street.
I have the same kind of problem with my 2000 sable. The other day I was driving from a friend's house when it revved to 3000 rpm and dropped down, spinning the tires. It kept slipping, so I asked my dad what to do (I'm only 16.) He filled it with transmission fluid, and then we heard it dripping on the ground. It has stopped slipping but I'm sure it's low again. Any fixes for this? Hopefully not too expensive ;)!

Re: I pour the transmission fluid in, and it ends up in...
You have to be 18 to drive here in spain,you must check the level properly and get dad out to do this because its easy for a mechanic but ??apply handbrake ,put some bricks behind the wheels then start car ,and put in reverse then check fluid level ,if its leaking then take it to a garage ,if the transmission is expensive to repair then remove the autobox and fit a manual g/box

That is what it sounds like. I would check the transmission fluid level. I f it is full, you probably need a transmission. If it is low or out of fluid, then you need to find the leak, repair it, and cross your fingers and hope there is no permanent damage to the transmission.
If you mean it is coming out of the fill/dipstick tube, then quit driving this car. You will trash the transmission, if it hasn't already happened. Usually when this happens the transmission cooler inside the radiator has busted, and is pumping coolant into the transmission. Then again I have seen some people just overfill it to the extreme. But either way it needs to be checked. This involves dropping the transmission oil pan.
Hate to say it, but your transmission is on the driver side. Most common places for transmission fluid to leak is the transmission drain pan. Another could be from a seal where you drive axles goes into the transmission. It depends if you have had word done on your vehicle recently. I would suggest you take it in to a shop. You shouldn't drive, if you're are low on transmission fluid.
First thing is to get a Complaint Form from your State government to recover cost of repair. Return to this area and if possible take a photo of this pothole. You may be able to get answers from your Road Commission or Help desk using your phone book. Most States have a dot com for downloading Forms. Use mile marker numbers or Street names to identify the area.
Check both your Transmission fluid and your motor oil levels. You need to do a visual inspection under the car. You probably broke a CV shaft which connects the drive wheel. But a broken shaft would have no effect on how the engine idles. You may need a Front-end Alignment and check for parts damaged such as tierod ends, rack and pinion steering, wheels and tires.
You could have damaged the Catalytic converter and the O2 sensors that are mounted on the pipes and converter. Physical damage such as a bent oil or transmission pan are also possible. Some of these parts should make the "check engine" light come on. The knocking sound can be the Crankshaft or Rods hitting a bent oil pan or you lost all the oil.
Sables and the Taurus both used 1/2 Frames with the front part being called the "Cradle" There are several bushing mounts to hold the frame to the body. They should be checked.
I hope my Solution gives an idea of what to check. It should also help with what to believe when a Repair shop works on your car. It does not have to be as bad as I describe, and I hope it isn't, but you should know what is possible.
Do you know where the dipstick for the transmission is? I assume you do if you know you need to add it. That is where the fluid goes. Stick a small funnel in the hole after taking dipstick out and pour the fluid. Remember don't overfill. Transmission fluid gets bigger when heated so always check when transmission is warm. Hope I could be of some help.
you have a blown front seal in the tranny refill with fluid and drive a short distance and monitor the light and check under car for puddle if no puddle and no light then i would service the tranny (replace filter fluid and gasket cheap fix ) if still leaking and light still on you can have it repaired or replaced
DO NOT pour transmission fluid into this transmission. This is a sealed transmission and should ONLY be serviced by a qualified Jaguar Specialist. It uses VERY specific and expensive transmission fluid, and if the wrong fluid is used, it will fail shortly. This will end up costing thousands of dollars. If you want to have a local Transmission Service Center do the work, be sure to confirm they know how to deal with the Jaguar. I know, because I own a 1999 XJR and have already looked into this. I've heard quotes for changing the fluid range from $300 - $800. A bit ridiculous if you ask me, but a mistake will cost dearly. I've heard Transmissions for these run from $2000 - $6000, depending on who you ask. Jaguar will not even rebuild them, so you would need to find a qualified Jaguar Transmission Shop.
