An automatic transmission fluid leak may develop from the rubber section of a transmission cooler line. In some cases the rubber section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this type of leak.

    this morning my wife left for work and I saw a red puddle on the front driver side where the car had been parked, and a trail of fluid as it left the garage...She called to ask me after she had gotten into work 16 miles) if I just changed the oil-she smelled a burning oil smell...I do take care of this car, but it has been a leaker, mostly engine oil drips, but it has been very cold here lately (around 10-15 degrees) so I guess either a hose or line (or gasket) has failed. Im going to her work place this morning, will see if it is something I can correct there, other wise I expect I will need to have it towed. I did ask her if it shifted alright, and she said until she got to the parking garage, it was ok but it kind of 'jerked' a little when she backed into her spot...Hope the trans isn't fried.
