My jeep 1988 start leaking all fluid do I need to replced leak from bettwing engine and trans

Yes. This is a main seal from the crankshaft, engine oil, A freeze plug from the back of the coolant passages, or a Torque converter seal which leaks transmission fluid. None are simple or good. It will need to be fixed. Just make sure any other work is done that needs to be when they do this repair. If it is engine oil, it can wait until it gets to be a nuisance. Purchase a pan from Walmart and keep it under your vehicle. Carry a thick cardboard or metal pan when you go shopping if it is that bad. a few in puddle over night will not cause damage as long as you keep the oil up. Excessive leaking dripping from the exhaust and undercarriage may cause fire. Keep an eye on things if you cannot afford the engine oil repair now. Trans oil and coolant will need immediate attention.

Transmission leaking from top of transmission.

It is the vent valve. Two things cause this to leak overfilling the transmission, make sure it is within the safe zone with fluid very hot to the touch, never check cold. The next is overheating the transmission from heavy loading or internal failure in the transmission like slipping clutch packs or defective torques converter.

Leaking transmission fluid

If the fluid isn't leaking from the pan, then suspect a worn torque converter seal. If it looks like the fluid is leaking from the bell housing area where the trans meets the engine, then you will have to remove the trans to repair it.

Trans fluid in radiator tray

You are leaking transmission fluid from either the fluid cooling lines that run from transmission to a separate reservoir in the radiator, or leaking from the reservoir itself. Hopefully, it's only the lines and may just need tightening to stop the leak.
There are two lines to the radiator's reservoir. One brings fluid from transmission to the reservoir, and a return line back into the transmission. Probably located on driver's side of the radiator, one will be near top of radiator, and one near the bottom. Small copper or steel lines that may also turn into rubber lines. Clean the area well with rags to locate the leak. Will probably need to have the car running to make it leak, while looking for it. You could also take a wrench and try tightening the fittings at the radiator, and tighten any rubber hose clamps that you see. If it's not the lines or hoses that are leaking, then the radiator may need to be pulled off for repairs or replacement. But 9 times out of ten, it is a leak from one of the lines.
When fixed, don't forget to check your transmission fluid level. Or keep adding till it is fixed.

My 1992 Ford Taurus GL 3.0 is leaking Transmission fluid. But I don't know where.

many times hard to find trans. leaks come from the front trans. seal being worn the leak is mainly leaking down inside the flywheel/converter area and drip down to the lowest point.
Also the trans. pan gaskets have a tendency to wear causing a leak as well as a rear seal... if you cant find it take it to a trans shop and they will add a dye to the fluid ask you to drive a few days and come back so they can put a leak detector black light on the trans. in order to find the leak. This is best done in a shop and on a lift.

Trans fluid is leaking fast between engine block and transmission. is this an easy fix

This would be caused by the front seal on the transmission & will require the removal of the transmission and everything you have to take off to remove it, the starter, shift linkage, wiring, torque converter, trans. mounts, hoses/lines ,axle, etc.

Make sure the trans isn't overfull & check the vent on the case of the trans to make sure it's not plugged..

you can add transmission fluid through the dipstick tube for the transmission. as far as the lines, most transmission fluid lines are rubber in the middle and aluminum on the ends, so they shouldn't rust. if its leaking fluid that fast, its probably a hole in the rubber part. also make sure the dipstick tube is seated well in the transmission. neither one of which is hard to fix, just determine where the leak is coming from first

Automatic fluid is leaking from the front of the small radiator

Your question is not complete but I assume u have a front seal leak on the transmission? this is the torque converter seal and it requires the removal of the trans to fix it/replace it, if the torque converter has a grove worn in the area where the seal rides you will also have to replace the torque converter. There are trans leak seal sweller chemicals out there, they will slow down or stop the leak for awhile, but in most cases this is a short term fix, also throughly clean the trans first (car wash works great) before any work and make double sure the leak is not from the trans pan gasket.
