Oil and Coolant Leak- Need help fixing

EDIT: I meant transmission fluid. I think I was rushing; saw black and immediately assumed it was oil. Then upon thinking I realized it was on my transfer case.

Hey guys I just got my "new" 1997 Limited and after she sat for one night I noticed two new leaks. I have State Inspection on Tuesday so any idea where it is leaking from and how to fix would be greatly appreciated. I'm newer with mechanics so thanks for the help.

Coolant Leak-

The only way to find it is to clean it and then find the highest point where the leak starts. Use a pressure washer and degreaser at a car wash.

Thanks! I'll clean it sometime tomorrow hopefully. And try to find it. Do you think I'll have to replace the main and rear seal

If after you clean it it drips off the bell housing then you most likely have the rear main leak or an oil pan leak.

I just realized I made a mistake, (I was rushing) that's on my transfer case and I actually believe it might be ATF. Sorry about that!

Thanks for the help.
