I tranny is leaking fluid on the passanger side. This started happening when I pulled my small camper and now it leaks when I pull anything. If I drive the truck easy it does not leak. Somebody told me there was a fluid pressure relif valve that could be leaking. I want to get some information before I take it to the shop.
Do you

I would lean more towards the cooler lines, and maybe a weak or broken tranny or engine mount, with the extra torque needed to tow, extra movement in these parts may be affecting the cooler lines. Have someone get in the truck, with foot on the brakes, and in drive, give it some gas, does tranny leak? You should be able to find it this way!
Of course you need to trust the guy in the truck!
