2002 Pathfinder LE coolant leak

So the trusted Pathfinder I sold to my son has sprung a coolant leak. The vehicle has 243K miles on it, so it's due to have a few things break. But I don't know enough about the vehicle to hazard a guess as to what I'm looking for. We've got the car up on ramps, and the coolant appears to be dripping from above the transmission somewhere. Manual is on order, but I thought I'd post a query here for you wise folks.



hopefully this image is clear, I highlighted where the leak is. Seems to be above the transmission pan?

crap - seems I don't have enough posts to include a link. Moderators - whats the point of this limit?

Well, if you reply to my message, I'll PM you a link to where you can see the picture. Thnx

On my SO’s ‘06 Pathfinder, the coolant hose (mounted to the firewall) sprung a leak, going across the engine to the place where the hose enters the passenger compartment to go to the heater core.

I was watching for something like this. With the engine hot, I went through the engine compartment carefully. This leak seems to be above the bell housing of the transmission as it comes off the back of the engine. I'm thinking transmission cooler / warmer, but I have no idea where it is. Manual on order. Maybe soon I can post a picture.

I'll look into it, thank you for the pointer. Right now, nissanforums is eating any links I include in my post due to policy. But, maybe your route will work for me.

You should be using the BB Code - Copy the text from the BB Code field if you want to include the image in a message on a website discussion forum that uses standard bulletin board codes (forums running phpbb, Invisionboard or VBulletin support this format of linking to images).

The BB code should look like this:
[IMG] http://www.hosturimages.com/images/c...athfinder2.jpg [/IMG]
I added a "space" after [IMG] and a "space" before [/IMG] so that you can see what the entire code looks like. The "spaces" need to be removed so that the image will display Like this:




Nice and simple.

thanks!

well the Haynes manual arrived today. The picture I posted is from the right underside, but according to the manual there are "fluid cooler lines" on the left side of the transmission. So, this is where we will look next.
