mudmagnet63 Trans cooler is part of the radiator

SuperTJ If it is the trans cooler, how tough is that? Does it have compression fittings instead of standard radiator hoses?

Until you determine what is leaking, how can anyone say how difficult it will be

SuperTJ It is oily. It is an auto. So it might be from the trans cooler?
I thought it might trans fluid but being up front under the radiator I didn't think about a trans cooler. I will have to check that when I get home. Thanks. Any other ideas let me know. How difficult will this be? Thanks

k2enemy Red= tranny fluid. Is your Jeep an auto with a trans cooler in/on the radiator? What does the fluid smell like? Does it feel watery or slick like oil?

kawzak Don't know of any red color coolant (maybe orange?). Are you sure it is not from the A/Trans lines @ radiator bottom of tank (if you have a auto) or maybe power steering fluid. Some cardboard will help locate.

SuperTJ It is dripping in two spots but I think it might be running down the bottom of the radiator so it is hard to pinpoint.

Fluid leak radiator?

Was going on trip packed up the jeep 06 LJ. Found fluid under the jeep reddish almost like trans fluid but think it is the radiator fluid. Need to check hoses, anyone have other suggestions? Will have to check when I get back Saturday.
But thanks for any help.
