i havent got that part yet i will start looking for it as soon as i install the transcooler after taking out the air intake, broken atf reservoir, broken expansion tank.the hoses are fine after all. the transcooler is where the leaking started.i didnt see this before because of al the fluid around it. had to cut the hoses my quick connect plugs were too much of a pain. still having problems taking out the clutch.

Can you straighten out the fins? There are tools to do that.

Damn this hurts for me to see....$12 dollar can of fluid caused this...smh...well not really but if his girl wasn't reving it so hard as instructed by seafoam this would have never happened...seafoam strikes again! lol (My O2 sensors went bad after I used Seafoam...$80 fix )

The best is you caught it on video...i did laugh out loud though...but inside I was really crying

I feel your pain.

also at least your hood wasn't opened...would have caused less damage but could have also killed someone. I was working on my girls mustang one day and reved the throttle in the engine bay. The alternator on her mustang has this plastic circle around were the belt goes. That shattered and pierced my shoulder and stomach...Thank god it missed my eye cause I probably would have it today.
