Whew. Don't like the sounds of this one.
At this point I assume the engine seems to be running normal?
Are the heater hoses hot going to the heater core at the firewall?
Do you know if the leak is external?
IF so pressure test it and fix that first regarding the cooling system.
Does the car operate in reverse?
How often has the transmission filter been changed?
IS the check engine light on? IF so get the codes.
When you are at wide open throttle and in gear what is the engine idle doing? It should be Racing.
