There are cooler lines there, but you are the one that's going to have to look for the leak

The oil will be leaking out of the left axle seal. This is caused by a failed bushing in the trans. It will need a 3rd clutch housing and probably an over haul. I see the clutches in the 3rd clutch housing smoked a lot of the time.
GM has a new housing to fix the issue

just got the word from the caddy shop...your right the trans needs a overhaul, he told me i could have a new trans from the factory with the 100,000 mile warannty for 4500.00...man that kicked me hard...makes me not what to own these cars again....he told me there were lots of parts broken inside, it started to shudder when i would get on the gas. that and the leak spelled doom for me, and the caddy
