TRANSMISSION FLUID LEAKING?

2000 Mercedes Benz 430e • V8 2WD Automatic •

I have a 2000 E430. 15,000 miles noticed redish fluid under the car after it sat idle for 4 days. This has happened once before after the car sat in the garage for a few days. Is it the transmission? Why would it leak this stuff, what should I do and where is the dipstick to check the transmission fluid?

The dipstick is in the rear of the engine compartment. Check it with the engine hot and running in park. As far as the fluid, it sounds like trans fluid.
