Sounbds like you may have blown a trans cooler line. It needs to be inspected.

I have a video but I don't know if I can post it. Fluid looked like the color of motor oil I thought.

Looking at the fluid isn't going to tell us anything. You need to have the can inspected.

I agree, my dear is getting hammered on pricing on over selling me. The car recently had front end damage and the radiator was replaced. Not sure if that is irrelevant. Guy did a horrible job. Car ran fine even after the accident. I had him put the radiator in and small repairs and now it is where it's at.

Yep, I would wager he did a sloppy job on the radiator and that's what let go. The cooler lines go into the radiator.
