ATF versus radiator hose - steel cage death match
The automatic transmission fluid wins.
I spilled fluid on the hose changing the transmission fluid. I thought "How bad could it possibly be? I'll just wash it off later." After just the test drive to make sure the tranny wasn't leaking, the hose was already sticky and well on its way to leave-fingerprints-in-the-rubber.
