Put a piece of cardboard under the car after you park it. If you see something, check under the car. Could be the pan gasket or hoses or connections that runs to the radiator. How is the coolant? Higher in the reserve tank? Could be your mixing trans fluid with the coolant, requiring a new radiator, coolant change, and transmission fluid change.


Hoses or lines to radiator
