Isn't Ford's OEM factory coolant now orange in color? Why was the tech concerned about tranny fluid......the block heater is installed in the engine "block"? I'm guessing, but I'll bet what the tech saw may have been a factory lubricant that was used on the heater seal/"O"ring during installation. If it's actually leaking coolant the heater will have to be removed and reinstalled with a new seal/"O"ring.....it could have been damaged during the original installation.
