TRANSMISSION FLUID LEAK

1995 Ford Taurus

Transmission problem
1995 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 131000 miles

My 1995 Taurus is leaking transmission fluid from the front of the car, from what appears to be the radiator. I replaced the radiator, but it still leaks from what looks like a second radiator in front of the one I replaced. What is this?

It is the condenser for the air conditioner or the power steering cooler. If it is the condenser, it will be similar in dimensions to the radiator, but will not be able to leak transmission fluid because there is none there. If it is much smaller, it is the power steering cooler, and could leak fluid that appears to be transmission oil. You may also have an auxiliary transmission cooler that is capable of leaking transmission oil.
