It could be the radiator, hoses, fuel pump or an engine gasket. All of those components just "give out" with time.

Antifreeze is green in color and is leaking from your radiator .

It is probably Radiator fluid that's leaking. if you have red radiator fluid. it looks purple when it heats up. I had this from my Toyota Sequoia when the leak went over the hot engine.

put radiator sealer in it or crack an egg in it

if you have an automatic transmission there should be cooling lines going to the radiator to cool the transmission fluid the lines could be leaking or the tank could be leaking

Green fluid leaking from a car is radiator fluid. "A professional certified mechanic can handle the repair or maintenance needed to fix this issue."

loose/cracked radiatior hoses

Find where the fluid is coming out and repair/replace it.

You have a leaking transmission cooler, usually part of the radiator. The transmission fluid is mixing with the antifreeze turning it pink.

looks like a sensor or thermostat going into engine block

I wondered the same thing. The radiator doesn't only cool the engine coolant, It also cools the transmission fluid that comes from your transmission through the cooling lines. So your radiator has a crack somewhere and that would explain the transmission fluid leaking out. Hope that answers it. William @ JeepGrandCherokeeTransmission.com

leaking head gasket or improper fluid in cooling system

The transmission cooler is built into the radiator, and the tubes on the cooler are leaking Trans. fluid into the engine coolant. Need to replace radiator.

the trans fluid on a auto trans goes through a tube in the radiator to cool the fluid if the tube has holes in it, it will leak trans fluid in to radiator. you need to replace radiator or have rebuilt.or you could put on a aux trans cooler and put plugs where the trans lines used to go.

If it is leaking trans fluid into the coolant it can cause overheating.

You have transmission fluid lines that go to the radiator/front for cooling you must have a leak there

The radiator will need to be replaced. Sometimes, it may seem that the radiator itself is leaking but it could be the radiator "hose" that is leaking. In this case, the radiator hose needs to be replaced and clamped tightly.

no the red clay like stuff is transmission fluid in your radiator probably leaking from your transcooler

tranny cooler lines or tranny cooler blew up inside rad

If a leak exists, there should be green or red fluid leaking from just under the nose of the car. It is possible that the engine must be running for the leaking to occur, but this is not always the case.

Your radiator is probably leaking transmission fluid into your coolant. Trans cooler is built into the radiator. Replace the radiator.
