After driving a short distance this morning i noticed the leak. The car drives fine but when i looked under the bonnet it was spraying trans fluid from somewhere by the dipstick. Does this mean my trans is blown or could it be a gasket leak somewhere. Any help would be great..

There the same fluid.

I also think its the power steering fluid. The hoses are prone to spraying when they split, mine sprayed directly onto the extractor tho....

if its the original hose thay have a tendency to dry and crack because of the heat of the manifold just check it trust me its worth it and if you cant see a crack or split have a look in the power steering pump for the level if its low that will be it i only suggest this as it would be odd to see a spray from that area of the box good luck :thumbsup:

trans has a little bit of rubber hose at the front near the radiator. if it is up the drivers side then i would guess power steering to.
