Question about 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
Those lines are for the transmission cooler in front of the radiator but there is no coolant or water going to the tranny. Those lines are full of tranny fluid.

Testimonial: "thank you that is correct, the lines are dry and free of cracks. The fluid appears to be comming down between the back of the engine and front of the trany. I can't tell where the leak starts?? There is a bit of antyfreeze nere the front of the engine also, but not as much. thank you for the info"
Lawrence is correct, there is no coolant in the transmission. If you see coolant dripping from the area where the engine and transmission connect, then it "could" be the freeze plugs in the back of the engine block or cylinder heads. Either way, the transmission would have to be removed to affect the replacement of those plugs. That said, it's MUCH more likely that one or more of the heater hoses or other small coolant hoses on the engine are leaking. The engine is tipped rearward slightly, so any leaking coolant hose will drain rearward and drip off the back of the engine. There are also two coolant passageways that go from the rear of the driver's cylinder head, through the rear of the intake manifold and into the passenger side cylinder head. It is fairly common for the intake manifold gaskets to leak coolant at these joints on this truck.
