Can you see where it is coming from? Is it coming from the heads, intake manifold or from a hose?

I dont know where the transmission dipstick is on your car without seeing it, it usually has a red rubber grip on it or a black handle, besure to have car running and at a warm temperature when testing the tranny fluid, the propper tranny fluid can be found in the owners manual or if you call the dealership.

For engine oil its up to you you can run 5W-30 or you can run 20, I prefer 30 for winter driving.
