If the leak is minor take it to a radiator shop and they can probably fix it for you for much cheaper than replacing it. Try tightening the hose, if it is leaking from the crimped end of the hose (where the hose mets the connector), then you will have to replace the hose. If you are getting green then its the actual radiator thats leaking and happen to be leaking trough transmission cooler vents.

Radiator fluid leaking, not from radiator or hoses going into engine block. Comes out from above transmission pan.


If the leak is back there? sounds like an intake gasket or head gasket if you ruled out the hoses

Oil Lead after new radiator and upper hose installation


It sounds like one of the transmission cooling lines is leaking, where they attach to the radiator. There may be a rusty section that was 'bumped' while the hoses were being replaced, causing it to leak. If the section that is leaking is not the fitting at the radiator, but a bit away from it, you can cut the section of tubing at the leak, purchase and slip a section of rubber fuel line over the bad area, clamp both ends with small clamps. Make sure the tranny fluid is at the proper level, don't drive it low.

Small coolant leak at front of engine hose area, not always maybe 1 out of 5 times driving to work.


If you can narrow down where the leak is coming from, it will be easier for you to fix, but it is most likely either a minor radiator leak, or your water pump. You can put a can of radiator stop leak in your vehicle, such as bars leak. It wont hurt anything. If the leak continues, and appears to be coming from the engine area, the water pump is failing, but also check around the thermostat housing, near where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine

If there is another dealer nearby get a second opinion. Repairs these days are very expensive.

try to clean first the oil on the transmission clean it with a gasoline so that all the grease will be remove then after that monitor where the leak is coming from but normally it is just the oil seal visit your nearest mechanic.

Transmission slipping......


If its the main seal gone,you will have to remove the tranny regardless because the main seal is the torq converter seal.Even though it leaks,if its slipping when full of oil chances are your tranny is no good,if it shifts fine its not to late,just keep it full of oil and have the leak fixed.Look under the front of the car when its in park,with the e.brake on and running,look for the leak.If the leak is between the the motor and the tranny its probably the main seal.Check the transmission pan,axle seals and coolant lines for leaks also.Changing the transmission is no small job and should be done by a garage if your not sure how to do it.Hope this helps.
