    Looks like its between the engine and the transmission. Sometimes its oil and other times it red looking transmission oil I think. Was looking at some other web sites the they said it might me the rear main seal. Can this be true, how hard is it to fix, and can I do it myself?

    Sounds very likely. It can be true. Like every other seal they wear.

    The fix its self is easy, getting to it is the fun part. Drop the trans and you are there. Since you are there replace the front seal on the trans as well.
