Transmission line is loose @ connection, or has a hole(leak) in the line, even a crack in housing. trans is a large pump, high pressure, if you have a leak, just start your car and look under it, you'll know real quik.

Oil travels when it leaks, the most common cause is the cam chain tensioner to the right side of the engine at about the same level as the water pump. You have to remove the bracket holding the power steering pump to gain access. A new seal is required there. Be careful not to undo the entire tensioner, this is spring loaded. Just remove the 13 mm bolt from the centre.

Is the line before and after the connector steel? If you can cut the leaking section out w/ a hack saw, u can slip a section of gas line over the trans cooling line, and put a clamp on both ends, quick cheap fix that will last a long time.

I believe the heater hoses are on the pass side on your truck, but have you checked where the heater hoses go into the truck? Otherwise on the driver side I would check 2 things after I checked the hoses 1. Intake manifold check it up and down they are bad for leaking at one of the corners. and it could be running down the back onto the ground. 2. check the freeze plugs. if you can go to autozone see if they will loan you a coolant press test kit other wise they are about 30$ for one .With the car off top the coolant off and press the system to what the rad cap is rated 15 or 16 ect. get your flash light and chase the drip. I would say the intake is your first shot at finding it. if you have a uv light you can also add dye to the system let it run and find it. First get some thing to stand on get on over the intake and find the coolant just remember it can leak from here and run and drop there. hoses , intake , freeze plugs
