I can relate to your issue as I remember being 17 once. lol You need to be a little more clear on where you see the leak at. Jack the vehicle up and put it on jack stands or those little ramps you drive up on. Get under the vehicle and see if the leak appears to be coming from the front where it connects to the engine, the Transmission pan or the rear where the drive shaft comes out to go the the rear wheels. If it's the rear where the drive shaft connects its a pretty easy fix. If it's leaking around the transmission pan it's a pretty easy fix. If it's the Front near the engine it gets a lot harder because you have to drop the transmission to fix it. the other two can be fixed with the transmission installed. I recommend you get the Haynes Repair manual on your vehicle from the Auto Parts store to guide you through any of these repairs. The rear seal can be repaired by jacking the rear of the vehicle up and dropping the drive shaft then removing the old seal and putting in the new seal. The pan seal can be replaced by draining the transmission, removing the pan putting on the new seal and using silicon sealer, you might as well replace the Transmission filter while your at it, and putting the pan back on. Don't tighten those pan bolts too much or they will strip.

Oil and transmission fluid mixing and leaking from under car 99 Buick century and now car will not change gears

you need to look at the tranny cooler located in radiator that's the only way tranny fluid can get out but how its crossing over to motor oil im not sure unless you also have a motor oil cooler in the radiator.and that will cause tranny problems ,don't try to drive till you resolve these issues., my other thought is oil is leaking out back of motor and mixing with leaking tranny fluid, try draining tranny first to see if motor oil is really in tranny.

2002 T-fird fluids leaking

Not really sure what your asking. But if your leaking from the power steering unit but it looks like tranny fluid it's because it is tranny fluid. Power steer fluid and tranny fluid are the same except that tranny fluid has a red dye in it.

I have no break lights on my 66 tbird. There is

Those cars had the sesquential (sp?) brake lights/turn lights during those years. There is a box in the truck somewhere that needs to be by passed or replaced. I can remember such a problem on my mother's car way back in the day(years ago) It was under warranty so I don't know what they did.
