If it's transmission fluid, maybe the lines you see are the ones for the transmission cooler? Check both your oil and trans fluid, and find out what you're low on.

only thing tranny related on passenger side is lines,or dipstick. 99% of the time its the lines MAYBE the pan. just tighten em. If you are up north they might be rusted.


engine wise its a valve cover or oil pan. chances are valve cover.


Do it this way. pull the dipstick for the trans. Get your nose down in it and smell it. Then find the leak and wipe it and smell it. If its the same smell its the trans. if not its the engine.

its hard to see the fluid but there are bubbles in my trans and it looks a bit low so im going to take some brake parts cleaner clean it all up and idle it for a while and take a look im huge on maintenance so if it is a cool look it will get a pan gasket and filter and new fluid as well
