Notice fluid on the bottom of the transmission during a oil change. Does this look familiar to anyone?

Possibly oil making it's way down from leaking valve cover? Leaky valve covers appear to be fairly common unfortunately. I'd recommend you check firewall side of valve cover and go from there.

The fluid did look more of a light brown color. Oil was black when it was changed. If was oil, wouldn't it be the same color of the oil?

I went back under to see if anything was going on and saw this. Transmission case is bad?

yea looks like it's leaking through the halves of the transmission case. They'll need to split it open to reseal.

Took it in yesterday, hasn't leaked again according to them. Said the pictures showed residue from the last time I was there. Warranty still intact

Last time there was a week after the last picture. They said it was old and not currently leaking. No new leaks. I have checked it a few times and didn't see anything yet.
