Question about 1998 Ford Contour
Leaking transmission fluid possibly from a gasket underneath the car. There is a black soft piece kind of like a filter or something hanging partially off underneath. It appears this is where the leak is coming from. It is very recent not sure if I hit a bump and jarred something loose or what.
Trans pan gasket is a possibility they can dry out and crack outward under pressure

I would have it de-greased thoroughly,make sure fluid is at correct level, then operate it for short drives at operating temperature,checking frequently for the first sign of a leak.Check the cooler lines and the vent, If it is running to hot or over full it will "blow" excess out vent.Hope this helps.

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

All you have to do is get under the car with a 1/2" drive ratchet, 3" extension, an extension swivel, and the socket for the bolts on the oil pan. Go through all the bolts and tighten them all up. You will be surprised at how loose some of them are.
