Can I drive with a damaged transmission?

Technically, the answer to this is ‘yes’ but it certainly isn’t a good idea. Compare it to a physical injury a person might suffer. Imagine someone breaks a bone in their foot and then tries to hobble on as if nothing has happened. Not only will it fail to heal, but it’s also likely that carrying on will cause further – and more difficult to repair – long-term damage, including to other connected parts of the body.

It’s the same with your transmission. Each mile you travel increases the risk of more substantial damage. An example would be when metal shavings chip off and find their way into the coolant system. Transmission repair bills are also likely to increase the longer you wait. And the problem certainly won’t just go away!
