89 WITH TRANNY/CLUTCH LEAK !

1989 Ford Festiva

My little all around car has recently sprung a leak and I'm puzzled. I thought it was engine oil at first because it is coming from the front of the engine right behind the crankshaft pully. Come to find out that it's oil from my trans ( and it only leaks when I engage the clutch). What I can't figure out is why it appears to be comming from the front main seal, or where it's comming from. It is leaking pretty good when I keep the clutch engaged. Any suggestions? Thanks alot ! Bill?

Bill what's the color of the fluid? Could it be leaking from somewhere else and ending up in the front crank seal area.
