It's transmission fluid because the cooler is inside the radiator. Has the fitting cracked at the radiator, or is it just loose? Maybe sure you check your trans fluid, is it still red and not pink, you don't want coolant mixing. Make sure you keep the trans fluid at the correct level while you have the leak. How is your coolant, is that OK, and trans fluid isn't mixing in the radiator?

Hey tom the trans fluid is red/brown still probably a little old but i think the o ring inside the fitting is bad i don't really no it drips about every 10 secs or so, so it does not lose trans fluid too quickly. Anyway i just wouldn't no how to change this myself theres like some kinda clip or something that holds the high pressure line in the fitting its old school stuff lol.
