Taurus circa '97. Son's friend drove in from out of town. They say that upon arrival, tranny fluid spilled out onto ground, and car stopped going. Car is not at my house. Looking for possibility of self-repair (esp if no shops are open Memorial Day), I am guessing that, other than transmission seals, it could be the cooler lines to the radiator, or maybe the trnsmission cooler itself (in the radiator). Any suggestions?
Also, son and friend are thinking about just pouring in some fluid to see if it will hold long enough to drive a few miles to excellent tranny shop or to dealer. Thinking of possibility of leak in cooler, and maybe sucking coolant into the tranny, I'm wondering if they should just have it towed. What's your advice?
