    In my order of probability, rear seal or pan gasket. Front pump seal if trans was not a factory install. Later trans had a pipe filler connected at the rear of the pan, which can get messed up. Then the Shift lever detent seal....

        If it's an automatic, and it sits for awhile, the torque converter might leak into the transmission and leak out the tail shaft...

            Sometimes from the left side lever seals if they have hardened over the years. There is a seal & O ring there. the oil will tend to drip down at the l/r corner.

              In sum, all the above are common sources of leaks from the FOM. A total reseal is probably best approach, which addresses all the above and con be done without removing the transmission from the car. Just hope and pray the front seal is not leaking, because the only way to change it is to split the transmission from the motor. Also, anytime the transmission and engine are split, for any reason, it's a good idea to always replace that front seal.
