What is this?
I started having shifting problems in my 2008 Compass and when a I looked underneath. Saw this area leaking. It is a loose black plastic cover on the back side of the transmission(right side of engine) near the oil pan. It is leaking a very watery oil looking liquid. Not regular red tranny fluid but not oil either. Can’t figure out what this cover is and what it does. I took it off and could see gears inside. In the pic, the oil pan is showing in the top left corner of the pic.
