    Clear? Water maybe? That may be A/C condensate. It drains from the firewall just right of center, but depending on the slope of the pavement it may show on the drivers side as the puddle grows.

    Trans fluid is red (brownish if burnt).

    Re: 1998 Deville mystery leak

    Too much closeup - back off a bit for more closeby parts reference. My guess is a transmission fluid cooler line - does it run from a fitting on the driver's side radiator tank down to and under the transmission ?

    Hmmmm........... that's a flange and a bolt head. Now I'm stumped.

    Re: 1998 Deville mystery leak

    There should be a way to reduce the size without cropping.
