Tranny's puking fluid

I just got a call from a buddy who is broke down in the middle of nowhere in Baja. His tranny is puking fluid out of the bell housing area. He is wondering if it would be possible to just keep filling the thing up and drive it to a shop without doing any major damage? Would it be possible to tow it with another vehicle while running it in neutral so he has power steering and brakes without doing damage to the transmission? The truck is an 02 f350.

It sounds like the tranny is over heated and leaking out the of the front seal. Let the truck cool down and see if it is still leaking.This happens alot on the 95-97 f250 and f350 that tow alot or worked the tranny hard. Its still going to leak if its in neutral and running would just let it cool down for and hour and see what happens.

Thanks for the reply. He was towing a travel trailer at the time and now the truck won't move, he wants to just get it back to a town without totally cratering the tranny. Do you think it could be safely run after adding fluid?

What about idling in neutral while towing it with another vehicle.
