Roll under the truck with it running and look at the lines to see if they are leaking.

If there is too much oil build up (I had this issue) steam clean (car wash) the engine compartment first. After doing that, I've been able to easily source leaks...

He said transmission, so I assume he can tell the difference?

Yes, I am sure he can. It was late and I completely missed "transmission."
