89 wrangler = tranny leaks after sitting for days??????????????

I have a 89 Wrangler with auto tranny, leaks after sitting for 3 to 5 days. If driven daily no leaks. Heard the torque convertor leaks back into tranny. What can I do?? If fluid leaks out is that a true fill?? What is the proper way to fill trans?? I have been into cars for years and first Jeep = why the leak after sitting? Any help would be great. By the way bad head gasket and head was warped = got back today and looking for torque specs? Thanks Russ = Nebie here

I wouldn't worry about it. They leak, it's just the way these jeeps are. I've replaced main seal, torque converter, pressure plate, pan gasket on tranny, pan gasket on motor, etc.. Still get a drop or two here and there..

A drop or two would be OK. After sitting for 5 days saw at least a quart or two underneath. Was told the convertor leaks back into trans. Why would it take 5 days to leak? Is this auto trans different to check than other cars or trucks ? How do I check fluid level??????????

You got a dip stick by the firewall passenger side of the motor. Check the level there. I never heard of the tq leaking like that. Fluid level check is innacurate since it only shows pan level. Tq has 4 to 5 quarts inside of itself, but it will give u an idea.
