there are cooler lines for the trans that go to the radiator that may have been damaged. have them checked for dmage and leaking at a shop.

there is also a power steering cooler under the car that may be leaking as well. the fluid could look like trans fluid.

a leak check at a shop is not expensive and is a good place to start to pinpoint the leak.
