It is your transmission fluid. Go under the vehicle and try to locate where the leak is coming from. Most common places are the transmission pan gasket, transmission cooler line (input and output lines from the transmission and radiator).

Make sure that you add with factory MOPAR ATF or aftermarket ATF +4 fluids. Other fluids will damage your transmission in the long run.

Hi Michelle,

It is most likely Transmission fluid.

So, Let figure out what it could be.

First - when you say front left side. Is the leak under the front bumper around the radiator or is it back farther.

If it is pretty much at the front of the vehicle it could be a transmission line at or around the radiator.

If it is back farther then it could be the leaking wear the transmission lines go into the tranny.

If it is about the area of the wheel then it could be the CV Axle Seal.

Take a close look at your vehicle you will need to crawl under it to determine exactly were it is leaking.

Post finding here in forum.
