My 1994 acura legend has been running hot, but recently it has started running so hot that white smoke is coming from under the hood. I also noticed that every time it runs hot, transmission fluid starts to leak from underneath the car. I have no clue what is going on with this car and any help would be appreciated very much!

Hi chiquita_cade,

Thank you for the donation.

Running hot with white smoke from engine compartment indicates coolant leakages somewhere. Did you check the coolant level and radiator fans?

If the transmission fluid had been overfilled, overheating would cause fluids to be pushed out of the breather tube due to expansion. Check the transmission fluid level.
