Woke up yesterday to a big ole puddle of trans fluid under my truck, and since this was a day I had class from 10 am - 9 pm there was no way I was going to be able to get under there and find the source, so I drove down the street to my local shop thinking it was the end. Come to find out that it was just a leaky trans cooler hose :bow::bow::bow::bow:

They charged me $150 for a repair and a new bracket for the cooler (apparently it was rusted out).

150k and still rolling strong.

I see you are from MI too ! what part are you from ?

thank god. I scare myself everyday with my truck. somehow I always manage to park over a stain from some previous car. I have a habit of scanning under my car as I'm coming back to it and always startle myself with some spill stain that isnt from me.
