AX5 oil leak. OH crud ATF??

Im about to go out and drop the skid plate so I can get a better idea of where it might be coming, but I was wondering where the most common places are? I did a search and couldn't find anything.

Thanks as always.


PS. Its a lot of oil not just a few drips. I pretty sure its about empty.

Update:

This transmission is a rebuilt one, when I got it they told me to only use atf...from what I read atf has sulfur in it which if i understand correctly.
Which kills the brass parts in the transmission. So did this place try to screw me???

Can you get a picture? Passenger side on the side of the transmission? Where the t-case bolts up? By the bell housing? Is it transmission fluid? Motor oil?

Well its is transmission fluid. most of it is on the rear axle and the skid plate as well as some on the bottom of the tub just next to were the shifter is. I found out that I had been running way too much fluid in there. I was adding it into the big nut that holds the shifter to the transmission. So i think that most of my leaking is due to too much oil.

I checked my master cylinder and it was leaking so I'm going to start there. I still don't know if i can run ATF in it. I will have to call the place that built it tomorrow after class.
