1. Check the connector at the right front corner of the transmission. It is common for this connector to leak fluid. This can cause the speed sensors to read false RPM signals.

2. The connector pass-through bushing can be replaced without dropping the transmission pan.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
when you reference right side of transmission you are talking from driver seat. There is nothing leaking under Jeep. Would this be leaking internally?

right front would be passenger and the main connector for the solenoids is there and has issues with connections and leaking, I would pull it and inspect it very carefully, and a trans can only leak externally
