My EF XR6 has developed a leak from somewhere around the driver's side of the radiator support. I'm pretty certain it's trans fluid. I degreased the whole underside and engine bay, trying to locate the source, but no luck. I have checked the trans fluid cooler connections and hoses to the driver's side end tank on the radiator, and they are all fine. So where could the leak be coming from? Here's a pic from the front of the car with a circle around where it's dripping from:

Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

2 things to check...power steering as mentioned before.....the cooler lines for the P/S pass under the battery tray, and I have seen battery acid eat through them.
Next, tranny cooler line....loose, cracked, or hose clamp let go, hose split...etc.
