The fluid is slippery so I'm thinking it is transmission fluid.

Recently, I have had some shifts that have vibrated the steering wheel so my guess is the clutches have oil on them.

I went on to the Ford Owners page and scheduled an appointment for 12/11 to have my leak looked at.

TSB 11-12-13 may be in my near future.
Let us know how it goes!
