First check to see if they are loose then check to see if you have a hole in your lines if they are loose then just thighten them up not really tight just snug them up if you have a hole in your line you can replace it with a new one you can find them at any auto parts store also make sure not to cross thread the lines when you put them back on if you replace them or take them off

SOUND LIKE TRANSMISSION COOLER LINE FITTING AT THE RADIATOR EITHER CAME LOOSE OR THE LINE BROKE RUPTURE.IT WOULD THAT LINE TO BREAK TO LEAK OUT ALL TRANSMISSION FLUID FLUID SINCE FLUID UNDER PUMP PRESSURE.FILL TRANSMISSION BACK UP WITH FLUID AND FIND THE LEAK.DONT DRIVE UNTIL LEAK FOUND OR YOU COULD DAMAGE THE TRANSMISSION.
Steven, The trans cooling lines run from the transmission to the radiator tank. This cools the trans fluid. Making new lines is challenging and takes expierence and special tools. Usually the lines will break where a bracket holds the line to the engine or trans. Look for a rust spot or shinny spot rubbed on the line and that is most likely where the leak is. You may be able to buy this line already made but probabally only from the dealer.
Sorry!,..More than likely the front seal of the transmission has actually cut a groove into the torque convertor neck.I have seen these hundreds of times, when the van is hot the seal wont hold the fluid pressure behind it and trans fluid will leak past...also the lines/hoses are on the side of this transmission..the vent is located on top of this trans near the main connector,.not in the front(Ax4n).,, seriously go to an accredited trans shop only for this repairATRA......again sorry for the bad new..Bob Stinson
I would have the vehicle scanned to find out why the od light was flashing. When the light flashes there will be a diagnostic code stored in the engine computer. It sounds like the transmission overheated for some reason and vented the fluid. By the time you added fluid the transmission and started driving the transmission cooled down and quit leaking.
oddly enough it sounds like a transmission problem, get a transmission shop to assess the problem, but first try replacing the thermostat. be sure to turn on the heater when adding antifreeze. I have had this problem with my windstar.
you most likely have overheated the trans. and it has blown the fluid either out of the vent on top or out the dipstick tube its self. most cases just a top off and you should be good... there is also a tsb on re-routing the vent tube so it doesnt clog as easy
