SOURCE: leaking transmission fluid
This problem if left unrepaired can cost you thousands of dollars.
Transmission fluid will typically be red in color,,and will leak from near the center of the underside of the car.
Take it into a repair center as soon as you can

there is a transmission fluid cooler built into the radiator of your truck, which means there are steel lines that run from the side of your transmission up to the radiator, on the passenger side of the truck. the lines are a common leak point due to corrosion. depending on where the leak is, the lines can sometimes be patched, but they sometimes need to be replaced (or fabricated). good luck!

Auto or Std trans??
If auto here's the issue...
Keep in mind Auto transmissions don't like to be run dry.
Also keep in mind that the 01M Automatic you most likely have retails for like $4000 just for the unit, not installation.
The corner trans guy can't rebuild the trans. This is a special unit
Just to check the fluid-
Hook up a Laptop with Vag.Com software installed.
Start the car and go into the transmissions data blocks and go to block 005, this will display fluid temp.
-ATF temperature not above approx. 30C (86F)
-Selector lever in "P"
-If ATF is below 30C (86F) bring the ATF up to test temperature.
Test temperature: 35C to 45 (95 to 113F)
-Remove ATF level plug from oil pan.
CHECKING PHYSICAL QUANTITY
If ATF drips out of hole:
ATF need not be topped up.
-Install new seal on plug and tighten to 15 Nm11 ft lb).
ATF check is completed.
If ATF does not drip out
-Remove plug from filler line.
-Fill with VW ATF (G 052 162 A2) until ATF runs out of level hole
-Install new seal on plug and tighten to 15 Nm (11 ft lb).
ATF check is completed.
Too little or too much ATF will adversely affect transmission function.
