I recently had a similar issue. Ended up putting 14L of fluid in the trans over a week and burnt out 3rd gear. Had to have the whole transmission replaced.

As for the leak though I found mine on a section of pipe where two pipes rub against each other and caused a hole. If you've got your head under the car looking up it was on the left somewhere. Just drained it, cut the section of pipe out and replaced it with hose. Fixed the leak but by then I'd done too much damage.

if its coming out from the bellhousing its more likely to be the front seal... it means the gearbox needs to come out..

it depends if you ever pulled a gear box out??

its not a hard thing to change, the hardest part would be pulling the box out...
