I had what looked like a transmission fluid leak. Red fluid was dripping at the crimped joint for the flex line. Looked like I was either going to get rid of the joint and go to a hose clamp, or replace the entire line.
Turns out, the "leak" was Dex-cool anti-freeze. The water pump shaft seal was going out. Radiator fluid was getting flung onto the transmission line, right on the crimp connection. And wouldn't you know it, there were youtube videos about dealing with a leaky trans line. Had I not spotted wobble in the water pump pulley, I would have either hacked the line, or replaced the entire assembly.
