SOURCE: Transmission oil leak
Be to let the things cool down before you get started. The cat converter stays hot for a long time and can give you a good burn otherwise.
The dealership has the AA Plug Adapter Part # 68021352 (for my 2006 Chrysler 300 Touring) for around $15.
Place an oil pan underneath because when you swap the housings, a decent amount of fluid will come out.
Turn the Yellow plastic dial counter-clockwise to remove the wire plug. Do not mess with this plug, especially the orange o-ring on this plug.
What you will be replacing is the plug housing that is still in the transmission.
Use a 7mm socket to remove the small bolt in the center of this plug. Make sure the screw is completely free so as not to do any damage to the valve body when you remove the black housing.
Go ahead and remove the housing and allow the fluid to drain. Up to a quart of fluid will come out.
Replace the housing with the now one, lining up the marks. Put your fingers inside the housing and use a little muscle to get it in, then tighten down the bolt.
Reattached the wire harness, add a quart of fluid, and you should be back in business. If you have lost a lot of fluid, be sure to take it by the dealership immediately to check the level.

Hmmmm, The tube running to the firewall may just be an elevated vent for the trans, but it should noyt vent into the passenger compartment. Are you sure it isn't brake fluid? Brake fluid is used for the clutch as well as brakes. if either brake or clutch cylinders leak it would or could be possible the fluid will enter through the firewall and run down the nearest thing.. Ck that out, you can tell by smell which it is. brake fluid will wash off with water, gear oil will not. good luck

SOURCE: Power steering fluid leaking.
Year and mileage? Keep the fluid level up so you don't damage the power steering pump, and return to the garage that serviced it. This sounds like something wasn't tightened properly, and they should correct the problem. It is possible that a power steering hose or the pump itself developed a leak, but, it is most likely something that wasn't tightened properly. That's the best diagnosis that can be given w/out actually being able to see the vehicle.
