Get right up there...I use a spotlight when searching. Transmissions are less fun to pull than looking at the top of the engine hahaha

Ya, it only leaks when running. Then when you shut it off it drips for a few minutes and stops? Haha

Have you noticed your coolant fluid going low in the fill tank? I am having the same problem with something leaking out of the trans inspection area but I thought mine was diesel, didn't know that coolant would run out that area too.
