I found out that I was leaking trans fluid.
I thought it was motor oil or power steering fluid since it was near the front.
but if the radiators also a transcooler that's probably where the leak is at.
is there a common place that wears out faster.
Me and my dad haven't had a chance to look at it yet.

Yes for automatic cars they have a small cooler built into the side of radiator, if it's leaking now is a good time to upgrade to an independent cooler mounted up front, unless of course it's leaking into the coolant also then the radiator will have to be replaced
