How Bad Is Pink Fluid Underneath the Car?

March 12th, 2020 by

If you back your car out of the driveway and notice a pink fluid on the pavement, the first question you probably have is if this is a bad sign. Pink or red fluid is typically automatic transmission fluid.

Newer cars have sensitive transmissions, and even a little bit of missing fluid can cause the car to have other symptoms. If you are noticing pink fluid underneath your car and the transmission is beginning to slip, then it is probably best to call a tow truck and have it taken into the shop for repairs. A slipping transmission is when the car revs but will not go into the gear and move. Operating it like this can cause serious damage to the transmission and potentially ruin it.

If you are in Miami, it is time to stop by Planet Alfa Romeo to have your car checked to make certain that the problem does not get any worse and damage your powertrain.
