Sounds like a leaky front transmission seal. Pretty typical once you get some miles on them. Pretty straight forward job to pull the tranny and replace it. Whenever I have a tranny out I usually go ahead and replace the rear seal too. Pay close attention to the fluid level and you can run for a long time with it leaking a little as long as you don't mind a little spot on the ground wherever you park.
