2000 Dodge Stratus, Leaking Transmission Fluid (popping Noise)?

Hello!
Yesterday I was driving home from the gym with my buddy and about a mile away i heard a popping noise (similar to running over an empty water bottle) than nothing, but i was leaking Transmission fluid the rest of the way home, i didn't see any abnormal reading on my gauges but i only glanced at them.
Also the months prior to this accident, my car always seemed to skip or slip whenever descending under 30 MPH, but never had much more of a problem with it. Another note, my car seems to wobble a little bit when i slow to a complete stop? is that normal or do i have to have my tires aligned again. Thank you for your answers

Best Answer

I recommend you take your car in for a thorough inspection soon. It sounds like you have several problems that need attention. A loud noise and then a transmission leak? That would indicate you may have hit something and punctured the transmission pan or a cooling line and could also explain the skip or slip you refer to. And a wobble that is noticeable as you drive would indicate damaged or severely worn suspension parts and would be unsafe to drive. I recommend you have a knowledgeable person/shop check your vehicle soon.
