HI,
Transmission fluid leaking from the inspection cover on this particular model is either a cut seal on the torque converter or leaking transmission fluid pump. Unfortunately, either way, the transmission will need to come out to repair

Thanks for response. I'm already half way on dropping the tranny. What are the seals are gaskets i should replace to go get them now
Expert:  Eric replied 2 years ago.
HI,
Sorry, was eating BBQ.
It depends on what is leaking. If the torque converter seal. You just need a new converter lip seal and pan gasket. If the pump is leaking, then you either replace the pump or buy a pump overhaul kit which will have all the needed seals and gaskets.
