Default I am leaking fluid.

I just bought the truck. it drives great and feels great. However It is very-slowly leaking/dripping what looks like ATF from my Trans-axle cover. It is thin, light pink but does not have a smell. My undercairrage is fairly rusty. what could this be?

Well rangers dont use trans-axles in the first place. If its coming from the transmission pan, its possible that there could be a slight leak under the rust, happened in my old 86, could never see the hole. If it was coming out of your axle, at 115k, by no means would it be anywhere near pink, more like black, or very dark brown, and it would smell horrible.

I don't understand light pink. Do you mean mostly clear with a bit of a reddish tint or solid light pink? Solid light pink doesn't sound good at all. Check the fluid in your transmission to see what it looks like.
