Auto transmission fluids, known as a fluid used to lubricate the transmission, are leaking in India and China.
The Indian government is blaming the leakage on faulty injection valves, a source in the government told The Hindu.
The leak is also linked to faulty transmission fluid in China, which was also linked by a report to a transmission fluid leak in India.
The government’s statement came on the same day that a report by the auto sector watchdog National Transmission Company Research Institute found that the leakage is being spread by the use of a new generation of transmission fluid that is being used in vehicles from Ford and Mercedes to the BMW M3.
A report by NTCRII said the new transmission fluid contains a synthetic material that could lead to leakage of fluids in the engine.NTCRIIs director general K. K. Prakash said that there is no reason to believe that any leakage is taking place in the vehicles.
“The fluid is being stored in a cool, dry place where there is an adequate temperature, which can help prevent any leakage,” he said.
“It is not clear how widespread the leak is.
However, we believe the leakage has been detected in a number of vehicles.”
The leak has been noticed in vehicles with an automatic transmission, which means the driver controls the clutch and brake pedal while the vehicle is in motion.
Auto transmission owners have complained that the clutch pedal and brake are not working properly while the transmission is in gear, but there are no reports of it happening in other vehicles.
In the report, NTCriI said that the problem was being seen in a variety of vehicles from the Toyota Corolla to the Mercedes C250, with more than 40 vehicles identified in China and India.
“It is very likely that this leakage could be a result of improper assembly, improper fluid selection, and/or improper fluid cooling,” the report said.”NTCri is monitoring the problem closely and will take further action if needed.”
The leakage was also seen in some vehicles with automatic transmission fluid.
A source told The Hindustan Times that some cars that had been fitted with automatic transmissions had fluid leaking from the clutch pedals and brake pedals.
“The problem is being observed in a large number of these vehicles.
We have been able to confirm that this problem is happening with all of the vehicles that have this issue,” the source said.
The leak is likely to cause the cost of transmission maintenance to increase.
A Ford C4, which is a hybrid vehicle, has been fitted to a vehicle that has manual transmission fluid leakage, the source added.
Ford is investigating the matter.
In China, auto transmission fluid leaks have been reported in the past.
In 2015, Chinese regulators issued an alert on transmission fluid problems in vehicles that were equipped with automatic control systems.
Auto transmission fluid used in auto transmissions was first introduced in China in the 1980s.
It is produced by a company called China Transmission Co., Ltd.
