Q: Lower tranny coolant line seems to be leaking in my 2004 SS Supercharged M.C. on 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Is this a leak that can cause about 1 gallon of coolant to disappear over a 20 mile run? There is no sign of leakage anywhere except there. The shroud is wet under there also. water pump, exhaust pipes, radiator hoses, radiator all dry.

Thanks Roy for answering...I'm not leaking tranny fluid, I'm leaking coolant. You mentioned fluid so I just wanted to be clear. I'm not sure how & why those coolant lines run to the top % bottom of the radiator? What am I missing here?
sorry, had a senior moment. the 2 lines on the rad are trans cooler lines. if it is coolant, have it pressure tested to verify the location. 2 common spots are water pump and intake manifolds. a shop can insert a dye to locate the source.

Hi Roy! I know all about senior moments...Wouldn't I see steam coming from the top of the engine if the intake manifold was leaking? Would I also notice a decrease in power? Neither is happening. You are a huge help and I apologize for all the questions, I'm just trying to wrap my brain around this. Also the area around the water pump is bone dry.
