SOURCE: gearbox oil
there is a pan at the bottom of the transmission that you can drain the fluid from.... you'll need to get a new gasket and it's a good idea to change the filter at the same time. usually you can buy that in a kit that includes both... most automatics don't have a drain hole. but be aware that you have to make sure that that is the correct transmission fluid for the tranny.
also realize that draining the pan and changing the filter is good maintenance but there is still a large amount of flud in the torque converter and transmission cooler.
I'm not sure how advisable it would be to mix the two types of fluid
changing the filter might be a better option... also when you do that there is a small magnet in the pan ... it catches any small metalic flakes as the bands wear.
and while you have the pan off you can adjust the bands... you'll need a manual to make suire that is done properly... that is if that transmission requires adjustment.... as far as i know the new electronic transmissions don't need to be adjusted.

SOURCE: Oil leak from a Mazda Bongo
Are you sure you are leaking oil? Rotary's are designed to consume oil. How much oil depends on how you drive. Oil is injected into the engine to lubricate the seals. It is normal for a rotary to consume oil. Make sure it stays full, I usually check every 1200-1500 miles or so. The Renesis engine in the RX-8 uses less oil than the previous Atkins 13b's found in RX7's. I believe I have used about a quart of oil in 8000 miles or so and that is with aggressive driving habits. The best way to maintain a rotary's oil consumption is to check in between oil changes and fill as needed. Get yourself a factory service manual for detailed info on your RX-8. I got mine from www.promanuals.net for about $20. The best tool I've bought so far my Rotary.

Can you tell us more?
How many miles on the car?
Which side of the engine area? Drips after you park etc?
Oil ever low? If so how often do you ad oil?
Any visible oil on engine and bay components under hood?
likely areas for oil leaks may include depending on model and make:
Oil pan gasket seal.
Oil pressure sending unit.
Oil filter installed dry or over tightened at your last oil change.
Oil drain plug loose or plug gasket needs replacing.
Valve cover gasket needs replacing.
Crank shaft seals need replacing.
Distributor seals need replacing.
RTV gasket sealer beyond expected life and need replacing for other engine components, inspection plates or covers.

A mazda bongo v6 engine has 4 fans, two are located on the radiator, one is just under facing engine by the belts. then the other one is not visible because it is inside the air con system. so the a/c one is nothing to do with engine cooling.
