There is a vent and vent check valve up there that was defective and when the Trans oil was hot, expansion would spit it out of the top vent.
Drip down both sides of the bell housing and looked like it was coming from the top back side of the engine. Tip was it smelled different than engine oil.
Dealer has to remove the transmission to reach the valve. So it's just something to know if the dealer has difficulty finding the source of your leak.
Good luck and let us know what your dealer finds on your car.
All the Best,

What was good though was the attention 'Sally' received from various people, lost count how many nice car comments she got. Enquired about a Shelby out of interest as I was there and even the salesmen were saying that the Boss was the one to have.
