You sure it isn't leaking into the cooling system? Check for leaks at the transmission and the lines going to the radiator.

Was able to get under it this past weekend, no obvious signs other than exhaust system discoloration about mid-vehicle & back Ended up taking to shop, they found rubber hoses were dry rotted/cracked. Lines replaced, fluid topped off, less than $100 to fix. They guessed it was pressure leak that sprayed onto exhaust, unknown why our noses didn't pickup on this, & fluid burned off, as to why no signs of leaks on garage floor. Thx your your input/thoughts.
