Today i noticed that there was coolant looking liquid underneith my car when i got home... i started looking around and noticed that it was leaking onto the y-pipe where the trans and the engine meet. I just replaced the radiator and flushed the coolant...there are also a few leaks underneith the radiator cap coming from what looks like the radiator intercooler lines...also there has been an oil leak on the vaulve covers and im just wondering what kind of gaskets i most likely need... ill put some pictures up in an attachment, thanks for any help guys! btw its a 2000 3.8 v6 firebird!
Let the car cool off, coolant was lower... And I checked the heater and ac, heater worked fine but the ac had no pressure... Any suggestions?

You sure thats coolant? Almost looks like a leaking power steering hose from the pics.
If it is coolant down the back of the block it could be a head gasket leaking, coolant cross-over leaking if those V6's have one or possibly even a cracked block.
Is it getting hot or running warmer than it used to? Those lines into the stock radiator are for the stock tranny cooler. For the valve covers just get a set of Felpro replacements from the local parts house.
