I have a transmission oil leak coming out of some type of seal with 2 bolts and its located between the firewall and the valve cover on passenger side. Don't know what that is?

please send info if there is a gasket for it. I've asked a few places but no one knows. the strange thing it's that is leaking transmission fluid and not engine fluid.

Are you sure it's not an engine oil leak? are you referring to the EGR, it's all bad if oil is coming out of that. That's the only passenger side 2-bolt hole I can think of. Do you have a photo?

No photo. Sure is not engine oil.

Well… You have a 3vz-e, and those motors are pretty odd. If it's a two bottle with transmission fluid passing into the motor, then there has to be a gasket. Although I'd be inclined to believe that our interpretation of what's happening there is suspect without a photo.
