My 07 pilot w/ auto trans starts and runs great but today, after driving for about 5 seconds, I wasn't sending power to the wheels. Engine revs, but no power. I walked around the front end, saw trans fluid leaking from around the radiator I believe.

Topped off the trans fluid w/ 1qt dex 3. Vehicle still won't move. It feels torqueless when I'm shifting gears.

Vtm4 light comes on and off randomly but I can't select it manually. Trans shifted fine, fluid was clean. Unsure what to do, vehicle is stranded in someone's parking lot for now.

Any ideas? If my trans was shitting the bed, wouldn't I have experienced other issues first?

When it's cold, open the radiator cap and look at the coolant. Does it look a little like a strawberry milkshake?

I will pop the rad cap tomorrow morning.

I found the leak, its coming from the passenger side of the rad where i believe the trans cooler lines are.
