I recently had the connector on the tranny radiator bust spraying Tanny fluid all over my engine. I had it fix but now I have this squeaking coming from one of the pulley I'm assuming or maybe the belt. Wondering if I should be worried at all?

Just tighten the belt small amounts till the squeal disappear upon starting. The necessary bolts to loosen and adjust the tension is at the alternator.

It depends on which belt/pulley is squeaking. If it's your PS belt, it will be really hard to steer when it's squealing. I would guess one of two things happened... Either, when someone did whatever repair was done, it required removing a belt and it didn't get properly tensioned. Alternately, the belt got fluid all over it and now is in a semi-rapid process of decay and no amount of tightening will fix it. In that case, replacement plus cleaning the pulley groves with a degreaser and then a surfectant is the best option.

The trans fluid may have gotten on the belt and it is now slipping. I would clean the belt and pulleys and see if the squeal goes away. If not, I would tight the belt a bit to see if that helps.
