What color is the oil that is leaking from the vehicle when it is running? Engine oil is brown and automatic transmission fluid is red.
Check the engine oil and transmission fluid levels. This will aid in determining which fluid is leaking.
If oil is leaking, the causes are most likely the rear crankshaft oil seal or the oil pressure switch (located on the side of the engine fairly close the where the transmission and engine connect).
If transmission fluid is leaking the likely cause is a faulty front transmission pump seal. A worn or damaged front pump bushing is possible, but less likely. A cracked torque converter is possible, but even less likely.
Please let us know which fluid is leaking.
