It sure sounds like it....and yes those metal lines are full of transmission fluid....they come from the tranny to cool the transmission fluid, and return it to the trans..

Need to replace the radiator on my 1999 Ford Contour SE. It's a 2L. Some pages say take from top..others, from the bottom. Can't find any videos to help me out


You need to raise and support the vehicle high enough to remove the radiator from the bottom. Drain the coolant. Disconnect the coolant hoses from the radiator. Disconnect and remove the fan shroud assembly. You can leave the wiring attached to the fan shround. There are a couple electrical plugs to disconnect and a ground wire near the passenger headlight that needs to be disconnected. There are two mounts on the bottom of each side of the radiator and a bolt on either side of the fan side near the top. You'll also need to unbolt the A/C condensor from the bottom edge of the radiator and support it out of the way. Be careful not to snag the radiator on the condensor or it may cause a leak. If the car has an automatic trans, disconnect the trans fluid lines from the radiator.

Why is coolant leaking from underneath the center of my cadillac deville 1997? I've replaced everything that has to do with the coolant. There is no water nor fog on the passenger side floor


Well, if the coolant is leakimg from the HVAC drain, then you need a heater core, no matter what. You really have to jack it up and look, but I can give you a couple of pointers......

1. The water pump is leaking. That happens a lot. The coolant is leaking near the front of the car, near the center, but ever so slightly towards the drivers side. You need a special tool to replace it and I think gm has an updated cover and gasket.

2. The water pump housing is leaking. The gaskets that seal it to the block are made of plastic and deteriorate often. The coolant will be leaking at the center of the car, maybe up by the water pump, or back between the engine and transmission.

3. The heater hoses. I have only seen this 2 time, but the metal pipes corrode along the fire wall.

4. You could need a radiator. I have seen the side tanks leak a few times.....


Just A couple of places to look, but you have to get under and look....

My 1999 alero is leaking steering fluid from the right side of the car what could this be and how do i fix it


there is the steering rack which could be losing fluid on the right side though a seal. and the pump is on the right side along with the hoses attached to it those could have a leak which is dripping down on the passenger side. you need to get it up on a lift and see exactlly where the fluid is coming from.

Trans fluid leaking from radiator from metal lines
