Not using the dipsticks for the oil and transmission, while seeing leaks are a sign... Check your fuids and keep them clean and full or you will cause damage to whatever componenet relies on their respective fluids. Answer leaking oil is NOT sign of a bad transmission, its a sign of a bad/worn seal(s) or hose(s). more likely a sign of a worn seal or oil pan gasket. Actually it's a sign of money that will go out of you pocket, the more you can see, the more you have to pay. If you don't fix it, you may have to pay for the aggregates, eg transmission parts instead of paying for a small rubber seal.

If it's leaking transmission fluid, could be a bad pump seal. If it's leaking engine oil, could be a bad oil filter, leaking valve cover gasket, leaking intake manifold gasket, leaking oil pressure sender, leaking distributor gasket.

probably everywhere, but if you don't find out where the leak is, you may burn up the engine or transmission, so if it stops leaking, you have a problem. FIND the leakand repair it.

Sign of bad rings or excessive fuel in cylinders. Check compression.

The AT oil cooler is in the bottom tank of the radiator. If you are seeing oil leaking from one of the lines from and to the transmission connection could be loose.
