Question about Cars & Trucks
You are going to have to post more info, if the oil is definitely trans oil bearing in mind the Power steering uses the same colour fluid.
The leak could be from the prop end if so oil seal, front end between engine and box first motion shaft oil seal or in the middle the gearbox sump or the level plug connection.

SOURCE: leaked tranny fluid.
Your transmission fluid runs to the front of the car in different lines for cooling. you busted one of the lines. figure out what is broken by looking under car when running (in park with brake on), preferably while parked halfway on a curb for better visilbility. Fix the problem or have mechanic fix it. You shouldn't keep driving, without AT fluid, the car wont move...
Hope this helps
PS Don't even think about buying stop-leak fluid..!

Yes there should be 2 plugs on the side of the tranmission for this. one at the bottom is for draining and one about 1/2 to 3/4 up the side of the trans is for filling.
See if you can find the leak and fix that first. After its fixed then get the right fluid for your truck, check owners manual, and fill it to the top of that fill plug.
Manual trans fluid is good for 100k or more.

It is NOT the transmission pan gasket or bolts ?
You have 2 trany line coolers, 1 fill tube, and the tailshaft seal, all could be culprits.
I would say clean the botton of the trany pan off completely, and see if it leaks WITHOUT the truck running.
Then start the truck and see if it leaks, if not, then put it in drive, and see if it is leaking.
Please let me know so I may help you further.

sounds like it could be a seal for your fill tube, or could be broken or loose cooler lines, they are all in that general area, crawl under, have someone fill it and look to see wherre it is coming out. take a flashlight with you.
