Don't drive it anymore until you get the leak fixed and the transmission filled. Check the lines from the transmission to the cooler in the front of the radiator.

ok, well, i had my dad look at it and it is a line that we had fixed late last year because it was dripping tranny fluid. I'm gonna make sure that the place i took it to the first time is going to do it correct this time! God i'm pissed! You can't get good service anymore these days!

Be happy you didn't have a fire, willwren might not be here today if he wasn't at home when his happened.

You know what this calls for? LOTS of zip ties on all connections of the tranny lines!

I was actually about a mile from home. If it wasn't for a bottle of windshield washer solvent, I wouldn't have a car! That was the old recall failure. The pressure line coming from the trans to the radiator. Sprayed all over the front exhaust manifold.

Also check your power steering lines. Some of them get pretty close to the road, especially on the passenger side. There'* even a small finned cooler down there for it.
