The best way is to check from underneath the vehicle. Safety secure the vehicle in the air with jack stands and on a level surface, a lift at a mechanic is good too. Look for the area that is wet and dripping. Most common area is the pan gasket.

Thank you, upon hearing your advice I took the opportunity and found the tranny fluid was leaking or near the tranny cooler lines or line the lower one to be specific, but how do I know if it's the tranny cooler or the lines?
