Unhappy Transmission overheat?

On my way up to my second year of college, my tranny starts leaking/smoking . So I pulled over checked the fluid level and it was at the "hot" full dipstick level and drove it to school slowly and it was fine. Also coming out of a stop, the rear diff makes like clicking noise until you get moving.

Any advice or things i should look for? im probably gonna take itt to the local subaru dealer here in flagstaff once my dad gets here this weekend

Did you check the level with the engine running. Where was the leak at on the tranny?

It would be hard to say for certain the tear differential was making that noise. Noise travels through the whole drivetrain. Any fluid on the ground? Are the cooling hoses for the tranny intact? Did smoke come out of the dipstick tube when you pulled the dipstick? Not a lot to go on from your post.

yes i checked the fluid with it running, and there was a good amount of fluid on the ground and it looked like it was leaking more on the passenger side. and smoke did not come out of the dipstick tube and from what i could tell all the hoses were intact
