Question about 2004 Dodge Caravan
My radiator was leaking and needed replacement. I ended up buy a new rad and replacing it myself. Once I was done, I started the car and a few seconds later i noticed a huge leak. Upon further inspection, I found out that the transmission fluid was leaking. It seemed to be coming directly from the transmission cooler, which was sandwiched between the rad and the ac condenser. Any idea what may have gone wrong?
There are lil tubes that the fluid runs through.id bet one is broken. This can be solderd if you know.how. youtube solder repair on a rad.

SOURCE: trans, cooler ?
You are correct. Almost all automatic cars have a transmission cooler connected to the radiator with 2 hoses, near the bottom. If the hoses are leaking or not installed correctly, all of the fluid from your transmission will get pumped out on the ground, and you won't be able to move the car. Inspect the two hoses and hopefully you will find your problem.

This is the best way to proceed. You can only hope that nothing was damaged in the transmission. The only way to tell is to drive it and see, unless you want to take it to a transmission shop and let them tear it open and have a look. It's quite possible that you did no damage to the transmission, just had the wrong fliud to keep pressures where they need to be for driving. No one can tell you for sure what will happen next, keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best. I would probably do at least 2 fluishes to make sure nothing got left behind and while you at it change the filter.
