2002 Intrepid 3.5L does it have transmission cooler?

As you may know, I just picked up an 02 Intrepid last week. Last night I noticed a leak very far frontward near drivers front tire of red fluid.

With a quick look it appears that is leaking at the tranny cooler right at the rad. I didn't even know I had a tranny cooler... is the problem common.. do you really think that i need to replace the entire cooler, or just the lines to it. (odds?)

thanks for your time everyone, still lovin this car!

It it a pair of lines that go into the radiator, or a possible secondary cooler outside?

You should be able to just replace the rubber lines or add a clamp (or just tighten the one that is there).

it could also be power steering fluid as it's on the same side.

The clamp screws are hard to reach and get a wrench on. Use 1/4 open end or box end. You might find that you have to remove the upper radiator cross piece to be able to get a wrench on them and tighten. The hoses are pretty tough, so you can crank down on the clamps pretty good - within reason.
