leak coming from behind passenger wheel well - 06 Commander 5.7.

Looks like transmission fluid and seems to be coming from a hose in the engine compartment.

Attached a pic. Arrow pointing to hose.

Has anyone else had this issue? Anyone know what hose this is?

That is the coolant hose that goes to the heater core/rear heat. There are no transmission lines up where your aarow is pointed. And that would explain the leak behind the passenger side wheel well because that's where the rear heater lines run

Thanks

Figured it was coolant when I finally decided to give it a taste . Looks like a hose replacement which I am hoping won't be too painful for me to do myself.
