Need Help Identifying part/ potential issue?

Hi, I'm trying to figure out what the small rectangular radiator looking thing is that sits just below the radiator basically directly behind the front license plate looking in on the truck from the front. It looks like a small radiator ( about 10" x 3" in size maybe. It has some hoses coming in and out of each side of it and it kind of sits angled towards the front.

the reason I'm asking is that one of the hoses coming out the right side when facing front of truck has some wetness on it which feels like oil. It is right where the hose meets the fitting. I have seen nothing dripping and no puddles under the front of truck so I don't think it is leaking much. Just wet at the
fitting. Anyone know what this is and should it be of some concern or not?

I am definitely a novice to these engines and am trying to learn as much as I can so thanks for the help in advance!

That's your transmission cooler. If I was you, I would check to make sure all the connections are tight.

Thanks, I'll double check. Like I said, I don't think it is a huge deal. I check trans fluid regularly and have never seen it low so maybe the connection around where it is wet just needs to be tightened. Thanks for the help!

Power steering fluid cooler. The trans cooler is integrated into the radiator.

Oh really, well again I check that often and haven't seen it low so I'll just try tightening the fitting. That makes more sense because the fluid didn't look red like trans fluid. That isn't pressurized, is it?

Just to enough to get the fluid to flow, it is not under high pressure through the cooler.
