Answers :

It can be two thing if it is 4x4 it could be going to the transfer case and the transfer case could be leaking if not 4x4 then it is the tail shaft seal or front main seal you wont see it leaking. it only leaks when moving.
It could be the rear main seal on the transmission where it mates to the motor. The motor may be burning off the leaking fluid before you can spot the leak. It could also be leaking out of the shaft seal as well, but you should be able to see tranny fluid all over the underside of the back of your car. You should be able to see it if its leaking from the rear main too, but like I said the motor could be burning it off before you spot it.

\015\012How much tranny fluid per week are we talking about? The rear main seal would require you to pull the tranny and then you pop the seal in, not too hard of a job unless you have a transfer case. Doing it in your driveway is not feasable tho because a tranny weighs a lot and I do not think you want to balance it on your chest in your driveway.
