Leak between oil pan and transmission pan

While changing my oil this afternoon I noticed a tiny holy in the pan directly between my oil pan and transmission pan. It looks like watery oil is coming out anyone A know what this pan is? B Know how to fix it? Or should I go to my mechanic? I searched and couldn't find anything online on this topic.

No I can see the hole its in the small pan inbetween the oil pan and the trannny pan it looks like something kicked up and put a hole in the bottom. There are four small bolts holding the pan up I need to know what it is so I can replace it.

Sounds like your talking about the torque converter cover. Only oil or tranny fluid could come out of there, and that's unlikely as it would be your rear main seal, or front tranny seal. There's a 99% chance that you have a leak on top of your motor that is running out of the drain hole at the back of the valley, and down the back of your motor between the oil pan and tranny pan. This is extremely common in these trucks. Look on top of the motor, under the fuel bowl and turbo to see if its wet up there.

That's what I tried to say. Wash out the valley with some degreaser and watch. Go to guzzles web page and read about the fuel bowl rebuild the oring set is cheap and only takes about a hour
