No transmission fluid can not leak out of the oil pan or any engine oil seal. If there is oil around the center of the engine and transmission, you either have a front seal leaking in the transmission, or the pan gasket is leak for the transmission.

if that's the case I need to have them both checked, I know that my oil pan seal is leaking.
Expert:  kalamykid replied 6 months ago.

Yes. You should have them both cleaned so you can make sure where they are leaking from.

Expert:  kalamykid replied 6 months ago.

It is possible that the transmission leak is nothing more then loose pan bolts. With out cleaning the area where you see the fluid it is hard to tell what is leaking or how much it will cost to repair the leaks.
