although I do have some oil as well! but not enough usually to make it to garage floor before drying.
I'll take a picture and try to post later in week when I see a drip. thank you all.
at this point the car is 20 years old and 317k miles. she has served me well as I bought new in summer 1999. I will keep driving it until it has some major $ issue. so far original tranny. I drain the tranny fluid every 10k and replace. not flush. so was planning on retiring it if really ever had to pull the engine out or other major $. sell it at that point. FL car so no rust anywhere. I have kept it reasonably nice but time and use eventually dries those seals. I do most repairs myself to keep the costs down.
I am OK with a dripping leak like this but concerned that if it ever would let go all the fluid. guess it depends on from where it's leaking.
