The antifreeze is not coming from your transaxle actually it is usually from your intake ,running down the trans case. This is a very common problem that 3.1,3.4 lt have is leaks at the intake.You have to replace your intake seals. But check under your throttle body ass. to make sure its the intake and not the heater hose connection that runs underthere.

If you have a 3.1 it is on top of the engine but if you have a 3.4 you have to take the right side tire off then remove the transaxle then it will come out through the hole where the transaxle was 3hrs repair time. I have one of these. also you do not have to drop the engine as some repair manuals tell you.
