Re: Losing Transmission Fluid
If you lose enough fluid and you have an automatic transmission (so I'm guessing), the transmission will eventually not be able to hold gears and run in a sort of fail safe mode (neutral) and you'll be immobile. I'd start with an underbody check and make sure the transmission seals are in good order. Overheating shouldn't cause that much of a fluid loss. If the transmission overheats on a regular basis I'd get it in for a service and full diagnostic.
