    good but dirty. I will repair this leak with a new R and P or a rebuild kit. The car has 140 K. I thought it was all steering fluid but it is too red.could it have been overfilled when i had a tranny service done last month ? it has only leaked on this long trip at high speed. My concern is the amount it sprayed under car and inside wheel well! The tranny would downshift quite a bit at high speeds when I accelerated.....other wise the tranny seems fine.
    Thanks for the response.
