If you hit a rock or something else in the road, you may damage your transmission pan. If you scrape it hard enough, you can cause a leak.

What causes a transmission to leak fluid?

Transmission fluid leak can be caused by couple of things. Most common being an worn out or broken seal. The transmission seals on most cars are made from rubber or metal. Seal is exposed to extreme temperature for years and the parts moving around them will eventually cause seals to fail resulting fluid leak. Faulty installation of a seal can also cause a leak. The another thing that can cause a leak is, if transmission case or pan is damaged due to low ground clearance.
