I pressured washed everything with the bumper off and havnt seen any leaks yet.
It goes to show that the average mechanic does not know how to correctly check transmission fluids on our cars, for surely they would have done that after fixing the leak and 1.5 quarts is a **** load of fluid to be lacking that's nearly 20% of what the tranny will take during a regular oil change.

Or maybe the po fixed this quickly before selling it off to you and didn't want to spend more money basterds.
