Where to Start

Two things, while changing brakes on 2013 Ram 2500 outdoorsman, I noticed transmission fluid on passenger side of engine from top to bottom with oil on bottom of truck also from steering cylinder back along the truck frame. Where is the oil coming from? I cannot seem to find the source of the leak. Second, the truck is lagging when I shift into drive. I just bough the truck in January and it seems to be slowly getting worse. Where should I start with either of these situations?

Sounds like the heat exchanger is leaking trans fluid, have you checked it or had to add any?
