The most probable cause of a leak that steady would be the transmission oil pan gasket. It is an easy fix and I would also recommend changing the transmission filter when you change the gasket. Hope this helps!

Problems with suzuki sx4

We (usa) dont have them here. 2010
why ask us>? lacking books,

there are cares with a hydraulic clutch for, over 50 years
my 1964, British car had them.
and all fail, as do the worse cable clutches.
why in the world blame the transmission when you know the clutch is no good, (actuators)
why? confused
the MC if it leaks the MC is bad.
if the slave leaks it too is bad.
if any lines leak they are bad.
why not just fix it. and end the pain., odd. post.

you see its bad, and then delay.
why not find a REAL shop and get them to fix the clutch actuator system.

there is no clutch
no, you meant the CLUTCH will not DIS-ENGAGE
and is bad acuator,
if it leaks
or the slave fails to move 3/4 to 1inch, 25mm. stroke.
as seen here
this is our j18 /20 clutch
see odds and ends clutch here.

see the SLAVE work. that is its only job.
to move, and mover correctly.
if it moves ok, and not leak
then the actual clutch is bad,, (i think not)

the MC for the clutch , fluid levels are dropping
hard fast proof this is failing , MC/Slave or both.
best is to replace both.

my guess this co-mingle words are shared fluid reservoir?
the fill jar? that is trivial if true.

Transmission fluid leaking from bottom of transmission/not transmission pan steady drip!

It is NOT the transmission pan gasket or bolts ?
You have 2 trany line coolers, 1 fill tube, and the tailshaft seal, all could be culprits.
I would say clean the botton of the trany pan off completely, and see if it leaks WITHOUT the truck running.
Then start the truck and see if it leaks, if not, then put it in drive, and see if it is leaking.
Please let me know so I may help you further.

Will it damage the car if I have a slow transmission leak to drive an hour and a half away as long as I check the transmission fluid before I leave and when I get to my destination?

My guess would depend on how bad the transmission leak is. If you notice a couple of drips in your vehicle's parking space overnight then, no It won't damage the transmission to drive it. However if there is a steady stream of transmission fluid when you are driving then, no don't drive it until the leak is repaired.

Transmission Fluid. Pontiac G6. 2006

The trannsmission is a sealed unit and there is no dipstick. Check to see if you have a leak. More than likely it sounds like your low on fluid at least a 1/2 to a whole quart. Since these are sealed units it should be taken to the dealership to have looked at. If there is not any leaks then I would add 1/2 qt of tranny fluid and try driving so see if it helped. If it helped a little but the same problems are still there add another 1/2 qt. If it doesnt solve the problem then your tranny needs to be looked at.
