what area is this fluid from ?
red fluid can either be coolant or transmission fluid and we need to know which fluid it is leaking
if it is coolant and only @ 1/4 cup it should be fine to drive to the shop for repairs 25 to 50 miles or so just when driving keep your eye on the temp gauge and if it starts to get up to the hot shut off the vehicle
if this is transmission fluid even 1/4 cup could cause the transmission to possibly slip clutches and possibly damage the transmission
these transmissions can be effected by being down 1 quart and is not worth risking the drive if it is transmission fluid
