My car's transmission is unknown to me.

A: Are you sure that the leak was fixed? It so...

Are you sure that the leak was fixed? It sounds like a bad water pump if it is leaking near the front of the motor by the belts or pulleys. Have the cooling system pressure tested to see if it is leaking from the water pump and have it repaired before there is more damage to the engine from overheating.
