Hello, as i got out of my car after a drive i noticed oil leaking heavily from the transmission area of my car. I'd assume it's a transmission oil leak but i want to be double sure.

Check the oil on the ground, is it Transmission oil or Engine oil.

Engine oil will be brown, your trans fluid will be crimson red.

^^^^ Yep, if not serviced regularly, that'll absolutely be the case.

OP, get under and check where it's coming from - transmission oil pan, rear seal, where the trans joins the engine, etc.
