Re: Autotrans stop-leak? OT-but need opinion
Boy that's a tough break! To start leaking that much with only 55k. What is the Mazda warranty? They probably do something like a 3/36 bumper to bumper, but I know some of the foreign makers are also doing extended powertrain coverage.
As to opinion on your options if warranty is not in the equation, I fear adding stop leak type products. I would especially fear doing this to a trans with so few miles and that is soooo expensive. And, since it is leaking a lot, will the stop leak even do the trick? I would check out some web sites of makers of this product and only use one from a know reputable company and if it costs more than the others, so be it. Beats paying $500 just to fix a leak. You can also go yell at the dealer you bought it from, maybe they will pity you and cut you a break on the fix.
