When you looked at the oil dipstick, did it seem in any way obvious that it was low

My guess - leaking main seal

That's what I'd say...rear main seal.

Yeah, it will make a huge difference if 1: you can lock down EXACTLY what the fluid is... and 2: if your oil is low

Sounds like a rear seal (if its oil) or an input shaft seal (if tranny fluid) and our engines DO have rear seals.

THey do have rear main oil seals, they are just not in the rear because the engine is transversly mounted!!!! It is the same physical seal found if the engine was mouted like a RWD car, just to the right side of the engine in our case!!!
