Default like i said, i hate my car. tranny problem?

so i get my car BACK AGAIN, so its all good now, engine and everything, no more bogging or anything or fuel cut....so i get it back yesterday and it drives well, but my tranny seems to be hard to shift, or harder to shift. today i notice that its starting to grind. i thought ok tranny fluid. so i get home and all of a sudden, liquid spills out from under my car. seems to be in three different spots. i smell it, but it doesnt smell like anything, but it looks like oil when mixed with water. and my car seemed to smoke a little white.......but is it the tranny?

Dam must suck... I thought i had bad luck with eclipse. Well my shifting was notchy and hard, but after I flushed and changed the transaxle, differentials, and transfer case fluid. I used redline oil and now it shift like butter. Well close

Well there were oil leaks yes and some oil around the differentials. No more leaks now. The oil cost me about 66 CDN total. So its not a expensive thing to change and maybe a test for you. If you can jack up ur car or bring it to one of those 10 minute oil change spots since they have a nice view underneath ur car. You might be able to ask the workers to take a look and see where the leak coming from.

No, but a head gasket is ussually what cuases oil and water to mix, and white smoke. What was just done on the car?
