Strong smell of visible leak...Any input??

All it takes is to have fuel seep for a smell. Inspect all fuel lines and fuel injectors/pressure regulator for dampness/stains. Make sure fuel cap seals well. If fuel tank is filled to the max, it can cause the charcoal canister to fill with fuel as well resulting in a gas smell.

Where would oil be leaking from at the transfer box end of engine after over filling the engine with oil? The transfer box is not leaking.

May not be an oil leak. Some may have spilled during oil change and wasn't cleaned up properly causing the spillage to seep making you think there is a leak. Clean what you can see with a cleaner and monitor for further leakage

What causes transmission fluid leak on 2007 bmw 750i

You do not say where the leak is; front, middle, or back of transmission.
There is a 210mm x 3mm o-ring and 128mm x 3mm o-ring for mating parts. There is a fill plug with o-ring on the side, a drain plug with o-ring and an oil pan gasket on the bottom. Common causes are age of the o-ring or gasket material, pinching of the o-ring during installation, or failure to have a clean surface for the gasket during installation. This assumes all fasteners have been properly tightened.

Check all weep holes for clogs below the windshield, it sounds like it may be coming from the fresh air intake. During the heavy rain, it will fill up with water if the weep holes are clogged.

Gas tank

When you say it only leaks when you fill it up - do you mean WHILE you are at the pump, adding fuel to the tank , or WHEN the tank is full??
If it happens during refueling, the filler neck may have rusted allowing some fuel passing thru it en route to the tank to leak out. The filler neck can be replaced - and may even be subject of a recall. Contact you dealer to make sure it hasn't been recalled for these types of problems before spending *your* money to fix a manufacturer's defect.
Many times, this indicates a tank that has a hole near the top of the tank - which is much better than one at the bottom. There are products - and professionals - that can repair (or replace) these problems / parts. Locating and accessing the hole can be another story however.
Removing the tank for repair / replacement can cause you to incur additional expenses to replace fuel senders, etc. that seem to be fragile enough to break during removal.

2002 hyndai santa fe , can't find leak during inspection of A/C system but it leaks freon after running it for a while. Look to me like is creating to much pressure in system. What can create this...

its possible to over fill the system with freon, that's why the gauges are so important,, if you take it to someone with those gauges, they can add a dye to the freon and it will show each and every leak if there are any, it may just be overcharged

My power steering fluid is leaking, i fill it up and it all leaks out does this mean the the hose is busted or the power steering gear is no good, yet when i fill it back up with power steering fluid it...

The most common cause is a leak in the power steering line. With someone sitting in the car,(and the car running) watch the power steering line and ask them to turn the wheel in both directions. A leak in the power steering line will spurt fluid during this exercise whereas a leak in the power steering unit itself would tend to ooze fluid due to less pressure.

Compressor not kicking on

Need to pull a vaccum on A/C to make sure it is not leaking, if is not leaking fill with freon, the compressor has a switch on it when it gets low the compressor will not come on, make sure you have it switched on max air when recharging.
