What happen if you dont fill your transmission fluid up?

If the transmission is low on fluid then the pump that circulates fluid through the transmission and gives it the hydraulic pressure that allows it to work will cease to function. If you are low/out of trans fluid you should empty it completely and change the trans pan gasket and trans filter while you are at it (usually less than $15 if you are doing it yourself).

If you continue driving the vehicle without trans fluid it will break the transmission.
