Hi there.
Well its a hard one as it could be the hose from the radiator to gearbox leaking cause either cracked or loose connection either on radiator OR on pipe 1/2 way down above the converter
Start engine,run till you see a drip, stop engine check bottom of radiator connection pipe for leak if none check pipe down towards gearbox to find a crack.

Transmission fluid coming from the front of my trans


If its dripping from the Torque converter cover it probably needs a new front seal on the transmission. Gotta pull the tranny to replace the seal. Just make sure its not coming from above like where the tranny lines go into the transmission. sometimes a leak above will settle and drip at the lowest point.

Cadillac deville pouring transmission fluid


transmission lines to radiator is leaking. The radiator will help cool the transmission fluid in most vehicles, and these lines can get crimped or become loose during normal vehicle maintence. Replace the lines and connectors, and recheck transmission fluid level. MIght just be a loose connection you could possibly tighten up. Busted or cracked radiator?

Seems to be red oil dripping from cross brace under motor what could this be?


Red oil (auto transmission fluid) could be coming from the transmission itself, or from the cooler lines that run from the transmission to the radiator. Take the car to a reputable transmission shop for checkout and repair. Hope this helps!

Transmission fluid leakage from stater motor area. 5.7L Vortec


If transmission fluid is dripping off the bellhousing your torque converter seal is leaking or your transmission pump seal is leaking. Chances are the torque converter seal is leaking since the torque converter is spinning on it any time the engine is turning, the pump seal dosen't move it just keeps fluid inside the transmission. Even though it leaks with or without the engine running I'm willing to bet if you got underneath it with the engine running you will see it leaks more with the engine running. Now if either seal is leaking it will require the engine to be removed from the transmission to get to the seal. Sorry but this isn't going to be a cheap quick fix.
