I have a regular 90 GP with the 3.1 L when the car is running its dumping tranny fluid by the drivers side wheel... the frame is soaked with it and it looks like it's coming from this "oil filter" type canister on a hose... is this the trans oil cooler? Why would it be fluid? Tranny won't shift or if it does it's slipping (just started happening and was a quart low when I checked) My GP Forum hasn't helped so now I'm counting on you Ford guys

I was about to say to check the trans cooler lines when you mentioned it. The 4T60/440T-4 used with the 3.1L on the GP should have a couple metal lines coming off the transmission and connect to a couple black high pressure rubber lines that run to each side of the radiator. Check to make sure the metal line hasn't came out or a hose is leaking. If you start the car like that, it will pump itself dry in very little time. You might want to also check the pan and valve body cover on the side to see if they are leaking.
