unfortunately it is yes !!

as engine oil levels are fine

and oil coming out near to radiator housing at front, i didn't know it had an auto box oil cooler however.

just an idea but how the heck do i get at it to see what exactly is leaking ie (hopefully)just apipe burst or worse whole lot gone kybosh !

and many thanks for shedding light on this subject
