Default Transmission cooling line leaking

Like it says i have a cooling line leaking. From what i could find its leaking in one of the bends right on the line hanger as well. Is there a easy fix or should i just replace the lines.

Best to replace the line but I have patched them with a short piece of rubber hose.

Where is the line? Tranny fluid is red, power steering is clear and there is a power steering line on the crossmember.

it's just rear of the engine. I may have to look at it again I thought I had it figured out nothing above the line is wet every time i wipe it clean it beads right back up. Whatever it is doesn't have a smell and it almost looks green but hard to tell with all the grease pluse it doenst smell like antifreeze its leaking pretty good.

That sounds like the power steering line, the line on the back cross member makes a u-turn back up into the engine bay . Either replace the line or you can patch it with a section of rubber hose.
