    the blue? that would be the pump. but i dough its leaking, the blue stuff looks like tranny assembly lube. if your garage is heated, it could have started to melt and drip.

    ATF is usually some kind of redish color, so if ATF mixed with that lube/fluid it could have made a purplish color. Feel like im in kindergarten again:D

    That is the "Front Pump Assembly" and the leak, if it is indeed leaking, is most likely the "Front Pump O-Ring"

    Read that right out of the manual:bow::bow: I myself have absolutely no idea if that is a leak, assembly lube, or a squashed bug:confused:

    I would def contact Bowtie Overdrives about it. They should warranty it since it has not even been in the truck yet.
