It sure sounds like you have an external leak and you are smelling it and seeing because it is burning off. This means it is leaking onto something that gets hot like the engine block, transmission, or exhaust.
Here is a guide that will give you the most common places for leaks:
If none of these prove to be your issue, the best option you have is to check your oil and see if it is low. There is a chance that the oil is a transmission oil leak so we want to try and identify which oil it is.
Once we can identify which oil it is by seeing if either is low, then we want to add dye to the that system. Then drive the vehicle as normal for a day or so then start looking for where the dye/oil is coming from.
Here is a video that shows how to do this. You can buy these at any auto parts store pretty cheap.
