Let us answer your question in a round about way. With a little detective work, you can determine what is leaking and here is how. Place newspapers on the garage floor under the car over night. Remove the newspapers and check the color of the "drips." Transmission fluid should be red, engine oil golden brown, engine coolant green-blue. To double check colors, remove the transmission dipstick and compare to the sample on the paper. Same for the engine oil. For the coolant, look at coolant in the radiator over flow bottle. Now that you know what is leaking, you can proceed. If the transmission fluid is the source of the leak, it should be corrected, no charge. If the intake manifold gaskets are leaking, they can leak motor oil or coolant. We would estimate the cost of replacing the intake manifold gaskets to be about $450.00 parts and labor (Southern California Prices.) We cannot see how replacing the transmission could cause the intake manifold gaskets to leak.
