Transaxle failure diagnosis:



Impact with hard object tore a slit in the transaxle pan. Slow leak...you know the rest.

I'm actually happy about this since I already knew the tranny was shot but I thought it was a reliability/manufacturing defect. This was just an accident. One less negative reliability statistic.
