Last time I was under my car changing my oil I noticed the hard line going into the trans was wet.. Ok I thought I'll look at that later.. well tonight I was going to pull the ATF dipstick to check the color and level and noticed the bottom of my trans is soaked now... But where's it coming from? It's dry from the dipstick tube base up... Is it the vertical plate that seems to bolt onto the front of the trans where the dipstick tube is moled into?
I've included some pics.

Also.. who's the $%*@ who designed the ATF dipstick? Ok.. so it's hidden and only accessable from under the car.. fine.. but when you go to pull it out there's a huge freeken wire bundle and rubber bushing righ in the freeken path! So.. blind, I'm trying to walk it out with 2 fingers.. and yep.. I break the da#$ thing off...
Anyone know where I can find a ATF dipstick? and HOW the hell are you expected to pull that thing out WITH THE CAR RUNNING... and check the level! is psychotic!
