Default Transmission leak?

I took my 2002 PT to the dealership to have the turn signal/light assembly fixed. OK, they replaced it and that's fine.....BUT, they told me I had a leak at the transmission solenoid. (Changed the tranny fluid at around 52,000 miles and only 58,000 miles on it now.)

Here's the thing though. I don't believe them. Have had NO transmission problems and park in the same place in our garage every night. There are no drips, drops, or smudges of any kind of fluid on that garage floor. Wouldn't it actually have to leak to see that it's leaking??? And how does one detect a leak under the car when all they're supposedly doing is replacing the turn signal assembly?

Default Re: Transmission leak?

I could be wrong about this.....they had to/should have disconnected the negative battery cable to work on the light system. To disconnect the cable, they had to take the air filter system apart. I believe the trans solenoid is under all that so maybe they could see it was leaking that way. ???
