Urgent!! Diesel and tranny fluid everywhere!!

Ok so over the past week I've smelt diesel from the engine area while the truck is off. Today I noticed a decent leak of tranny fluid. I cannot locate the source as its dripping from tranny lines, the pan, and starter. And there is a ridiculous amount of diesel in the valley. Which I cannot locate the source. I refuse to drive it after finding all this. The tranny us under warranty with only 10k miles on it. The motor has 309k miles on it! I'm in dire need of help! Anything is better then nothing!!

If you are sure that you are leaking trans fluid take it back to the trans shop and let them deal with it but you should probably take care of the diesel fuel leak first. Paper towels and brakekleen are your friends for cleaning and drying the engine valley so that you can locate the leak. Could be fuel pump, fuel canister, fuel lines,fpr, or little of each. Good luck it can be a b*tch finding fuel or oil leaks.

Mine is doing the same thing but it is coolant. Do you have cat elc coolant? It could be just a hose on top of you engine or the heat valve that goes to your heater core. (I think that is what it is) good luck.
