Leaking liquid

I'm a little worried my alternator went out on me the other day so I replaced it but sence then if it sits for mor than 12 hours a water like substance leaks out of the area where the engine meets the transmission more so on the engine side(rear right of engine). I have felt the substance it is clear and doesn't smell like anything. Also if I were to drive around for a bit it's gone and the area is dry. Am in for some costly repairs?

Update: going uphill it wouldn't shift out of 3rd gear and when I got to the top of the hill and let off the gas it mad a weird gurgling noise. I'm just going to park her till I figure out what's going on I don't think it's tranny related in thing it's with the fuel system.

The liquid looks like coolant, have you noticed any changing variables on the level indicator on the side of your degas bottle?

Let me know and we can go from there, also look at where the leak is and go up from there, What I like to do is get a high powered hose nozzle or a pressure washer and wash the crap out of the affected area. Then I will take a can of engine degreaser and sprat it down then use some brake cleaner to wash it all off and make it dry. Then go for a 30 minute test drive then reinspect the area and see if there are any wet spots. Always look above where the leak is coming from and you can usually find it after doing the above mentioned steps.
