Default Blowing ATF after Rad Replacement

Hey Guys. I have a 97 ram 1500 5.2L. I had to replace my rad yesterday because it was leaking. So I went and got the spectra from Autozone and ever since replacement I am blowing ATF all over the passenger side of the engine bay. I have gone over the connections and I cant seem to find which one it might be. Has anyone had this problem before? Any ideas of where to really look ? Thanks in advance.

Have you checked to see if it's coming from the vent tube? Also check the fluid for signs of coolant. This would indicate the radiator is defective internally.

You most likely blew a tranny line, or cross threaded your tranny lines in the rad. Get some brakeclean and clean everything thing off well. Then get some one to start it while you look underneath for the leak.
