trans fluid pouring from trans/engine

I have ATF pouring from where my transmission and engine meet. I just pulled a stump out in 4wd. Any ideas on what this could be? It still drives and shifts fine?

The truck only was running for about 5 minutes. I pulled the flywheel inspection plate and fluid was pooled up in there. I checked the lines that run into the side and they are fine and not leaking. I'm thinking front seal possibly?

Sounds like a front seal to me. It could have been caused by a plugged vent though.

It is the Front Seal, i guarantee it. They're about $8-14 dollars...just drop the trans, Pull the TC off, and exchange it out. It's caused from overheating the transmission.

next you need to figure out why your transmission is overheating though, stuck valve, clogged vent or line.
