I don't get it. What do you mean help? Fix your leak.
What is causing the leak and from where? Are you asking what the shop could have done to cause a brake leak?

Replace the leaking wheel cylinder. The trany shop has nothing to do with it. The two are not related.

ohh im sorry, i wasnt very specific.. but yeahh idk maybe its just a coincidence... but it was my first time at this transmission specialist. and they seemed to be pretty nice but kind of stuck up and non caring.. and they were a little pricey and also charged me for 2 new brake fluid they have listed. and i drove it for a day to see how the tranny felt and come back out the next day and there was a huge leak. witch ive come to figure out was under right rear tire and thank you areyouforceral. because the wheel cylinder has to be it.. but the thing im asking about the shop is wouldnt they would of checked or noticed? both my clutch reservior and brake reservior where completly empty in one day.. and they also installed a new clutch.. soo wth? and also what does clutch fluid level have to do with leaking wheel cylinder?
appreciate any help or though/sugestions
thanks again

Update: took it back and they said there may of been a air bubble in clutch line or somthing and it will or did work its way out. and also picked up 2 new wheel cylnders and pads and having them put them on because i dont not want to pinch any lines or crazy shit.

no its a transmission shop they can give u the heads up the that parts is bad but they dont have to repair it (wheel cylinder) cause u went there to fix ur tranny.they can fix it if u didnt have that problem before u came to that shop

ur brakes and clutch are two different system

The reason they charged you for brake fluid is because thats what your slave cylinder uses. The wheel cylinder is just a coincidence.
