Can't tell what could be leaking here. This is on my friend's 2006 with an auto trans. The leak is where all the black stuff is, right next to the lower transmission mount.

The gasket/seal for the transmission valve-body(under that black cover) can leak and cause the moist condition you see there. Just keep the fluid full or you'll have to drop the sub-frame and drain the ATF to re-seal it.

That fluid looks red. IF it's red, then it's trans fluid. Probably could use a re-seal on the part that's leaking, no reason to do the whole trans.. Unless you've got high miles.

That black cover is covering all the intricate electronic components that operate the trans, you should be able to pull it off without removing the trans...

Just drain the fluid, remove the black cover, ... re-seal it (use a gasket, AND ultra-black sealant) and tighten back up to spec, should be good...

The red you are seeing in the picture is the sealant used in the seams of the transmission. When I put my finger on it, a black residue came off. I think it's too dirty to tell what color is coming out at this point. The leak seems recent, but not new if that makes sense..

Now if only checking the transmission fluid wasn't so damn annoying.
