Default A day of Donuts

well i was doing donuts and drifting in a parking lot and i was holding the steering wheel all the way to the right and left and it would make a noise then when i stopped i noticed smoke coming out of the hood i opened and it was coming from the transmission fluid thing and when i would put more transmission fluid and i would move the steering wheel it would become empty again........so wat is wrong?

transmission fluid or power steering fluid??

I know my car used to have a power steering fluid leak, when the wheel was in full lock.


check for lines getting in the way of moving parts.

Be very careful when playing with donuts and spinning your tires. When only one wheel spins, the transmission differential pinion gear carrier will spin at high speed in order to uncouple the non spinning wheel.
This will seriously harm the differential and will over heat it because it is running in very thin transmission fluid....not heavy duty gear lube.
This could cause you to lose oil.

Start looking for a diff case fracture in the near future... Don't be supprised if the tranny drops all of its guts all over the road soon...

You gotta pay to play.

Find out exactly where your fluid is leaking from and try to describe it to us, or better yet, take a picture of it and post it here.
