Most likely a loose hose clamp or loose bolts/ bad gasket at the thermostat housing. Is the petcock closed at the bottom of the radiator?

1998 ford e250 transmission fuild in radiator if line leaks which one would it be i have new radiator hoses

There is a "loop" inside your radiator for the transmission oil cooler. If the cooler is leaking inside of the radiator, you will have a kind of funky sludge in your engine coolant. For what it costs to disassemble your radiator and replace the transmission oil cooler, you can purchase a new aftermarket radiator with one already in it.

1997 ford f140 2wd 4.6 automatic transmission is leaking, have replaced pan, gasket and rear seal what else will cause it to leak? leaking out rear of pan, you pour fluid in and it runs out without even...

On the front of your truck where your radiator is there is a transmission cooler,there are lines running from your transmission to that cooler they could be leaking, the transmission cooler is behind the grill on the front of your truck infront of your radiator, and as far as a stop leak, myself it is alot cheaper than buying a transmission, I would suggest that you use CD2 transmission stop leak, just a suggestion.

Transmission fluid & radiator fluid keeps getting low. know approx. where leak is, drivers side front on inside of front tire. would a leak in radiator cause trans. fluid to leak also from radiator?...

Your transmission fluid runs to your cooling system to cool the transmission oil. So, in answer to your question, one of the two transmission lines (one in, bottom and one out, top) could be leaking from the cooling system.

Bring your vehicle in for a cooling system pressure check. Another thing to keep in mind when inspecting leaks is that where you see the leak may not necessarily be where the leak is from. While the leak will drip down, the wind from when you're driving will splatter the leak all over the under-carriage of your vehicle making it look like leaks are happening where they in fact, are not.

Line loose from 2000 ford taurus transmission thats goes to radiator

Those other guys are out of line and wrong.
Fellas if you just guessing stay out of it.
Taurus has "o" ring fittings with nylon retainers and are free to move. If its not leaking dont worry about it.

Lines for transmission fluid from engine block to transmission leak

The two trans cooler lines run from the trans to the radiator,they are routed along the engine block.
If you can find which one is leaking you can cut the line and install a piece of 5/16 rubber gas hose and two clams to repair it.
