    does your transmission lose tranny fluid?
    That really sounds like it might be the tranny front seal.

    my guess would be a leaking valve cover......oil dripping on the exhaust or maybe a leak at the back of the intake manifold. start looking for oil. it can sometimes be hard on a greasy engine but you should be able to tell where the fresh stuff is.
