first off, it is oil you are leaking and not trans fluid, correct? it is a little difficult to spot an oil leak because any seals that leak above the oil pan will drool onto the oil pan in the gasket area. on the transmission side of the oil pan there are 2 common places for oil to leak from your motor - distributor o-ring and the valve cover gasket. if you can, clean off the areas with oil and see where the highest point is where the oil is coming from.

no seal will last forever, but you can stop oil leaks for easily another 133k kms.

I'd clean the engine (simple green works well, and some brushes, any kind). And THEN try to find the leak. Otherwise in my experience it turns into a guessing game to find this leak.
