Re: coolant leaks down by transmission
Fist check your heater hoses that connect to the heater core as one of them may have a small pin hole in it and be expanding when it gets hot spraying coolant over behind the transmission.
the other two possabilities that come to mind are that a head gasket could be leaking at the back of the engine, or t could be a frost plug on the back side of the engine.
1) to check the heater hoses let the truck get warmed up and then try wiggleing the heater hoses by the heater core to see if they are leaking.
2) to check the head gaskets look around the back of the engine and see if you can see a stain that is white or rust color like a trail that water would leave if it was flowing,
3) if the coolant appears to be only coming out between the engine and the transmission then it is most likely a frost plug.

Leaking inside sounds like the heater core. If the core is broke right where the heater hoses connect, it might be losing coolant down both sides of firewall, inside and outside. Otherwise, look for a leak at the intake manifold. That might run down back of engine near the transmission, as you indicated. Good luck.
Hi, could be many things. First you should determine what type of fluid has leaked. If it is green or orange color and feels like water and slimy, it is most likely coolant. If it it reddish and oily, transmission fluid. If it is brownish to black and oily, probably engine oil. Bluish/purpleish/clear and like water it is windshield wiper solvent.
Second is to look underneath the area of the vehicle and try to determine which component the leak originated from. If you can determine those 2 things, repost the findings for further assistance.
Thats not necessarily a problem. I'm assuming your not overheating while driving. The bubbling sound you hear is most likely thr sound of coolant bubbling into or outoff the overflow tank. If you losing coolant, however, you may have a leak. Next time you park and turen the engine off cxheck underthe car and see if any coolant is leaking.
On the back side of your motor... On top there is a aluminum coolant hose that has a nylon fitting in it. Make sure it isnt weaping. It will run down the back of your block. The other thing it may be is a frost plug behind your transmission bell housing. This would require pulling the transmission to replace the plug, Check the hose first. Good luck
