We just paid $2,000 to have the automatic transmission fully rebuilt in our son's 1999 CRV. When we got it home from the shop, there appears to be a small leak of transmission fluid. Prior to this work, the car never leaked a drop of anything. Is this normal with a rebuilt transmission?

not unless the mechanic has spilled some oil while refilling or overfilled the transmission, i would get the car up on a lift and have a look where its coming from.

Bring it back to the transmission shop NOW and voice your concerns.


and DON'T let them put any type of stop-leak in the fluid.

Gotta agree with Carbuff2 on this one.Have them find and show you where the leak is coming from....and then make them fix it.If its mere "spillage" from the initial fill,you should be able to see where it happened.Otherwise..leaks are NOT commonplace. Tranny fluid is very thin,and will find the easiest route out.It could be something as minor as a loose pan bolt,or it could be Tourque converter seal.The first is easy,the latter requires the tranny to come back out.:cool:
