'97 C230 coolant leak from vents?

I have 97 w202 c230 that is leaking coolant from two small, what look like vents on either side of the gear box underneath the car. Anyone have any experience? I dont believe I have over filled the coolant because this will leak until the check engine light apears. Thanks, Mitch

I would concur with that assessment.
