Re: Headers +Tranny Fluid = fire?

Not sure about ATF, but when I worked for Rousch Racing we had a vehicle fire on a dynochasitor. While the vehicle test was in progress it sprung a POWER STEERING FLUID leak, spraying on the exhaust manifold starting an uncontrolable fire that ultimatelly claimed nearly the whole biulding.

If a Jeep is flipped and is leaking ATF, won't it just leak on the hood? I guess if it is on it's side it could happen, but I wouldn't think a Jeep on it's side wouldn't leak ATF out the dip stick tube.
