Inspecting My Own Car

I certainly don't know a lot about Mustangs yet but I'm taking pics and need help to understand and how to fix the problem that I see on the undercarriage of the car. Here my first problem I'm finding some type of liquid near the end of this hose. The liquid I believe is antifreeze. Is this normal?

i'm trying to figure out where this is on the car, but i'm pretty sure thats not antifreeze, Antifreeze is normally an orange or greenish-yellow color, that on my computer looks like it is red like transmission fluid.

No they don't come stock....bro I'd say get under your car with a can of degreaser and scrub away, clean it ALL, than everyday get under there and check for wetness and it will be a 10000 times easier to find where it's coming from when its not EVERYWHERE down there if you get my drift

I haven't looked on out cars but I know my old altima had a couple of lines that ran to the bottom of by radiator to cool the trans fluid off....its possible his might have the same thing

My 95 v6 has a trans cooler and it's stock. They did change some stuff in 1999 though.

... Look at your radiator and see if it has two small lines going into it at any point..
If it does, Transmission lines, if it does not, I would check to see for any dripping while the car is running.

Are those two lines wet around the metal fittings? If not, Follow them to the other end and see if they are wet there.

If you find wet fittings, you probably have found your problem-o.
