Default Transmission Troubles..

Looking for some guidance fellas. I'm sure someone has seen this before. I swear if it isn't one thing with this truck, its another. I installed a new CAI and found my battery terminals cracked. Got new tint, and noticed what at first i thought was an oil leak. Upon further investigation, I noticed it was transmission fluid, not oil. I attached the pictures from where the fluid is coming from. To me it looks like where the transmission bellhousing mates to the rear of the engine, there is a gap/hole somehow. Has this happened to anyone else?

I have noticed over the past month or so, that every once an a while the tranny will slip out of gear, or wont go forward when i hit the gas, then it lunges like it caught all of a sudden. Does this sound like a symptom of a tranny leak? or maybe something worse?

My next question is, what do i do about it exactly? thanks guys.

That's going to be either an input shaft or front pump seal; possibly both. Have you checked the fluid level recently?
