How hard to fix transmission leak?

98 ZJ with 4WD Automatic Transmission. Seal between the transmission and the transfer case appears to be leaking. Bolts have been checked and are tight so they are not the problem. Showed signs of a leak last weekend but then not a drop for a week while we watched it like a hawk. Leak showed back up after a 1 hour plus drive and then again after the same drive back. Can novices fix this or should we take her in?

Easy fix, unbolt drive shafts, undo linkage, electrical connections on tc, bolts on tc to trans. Get some rtv sealent and put a bead on the transmission and put everything back together.

Just take off the transfercase and replace the transmission output seal, make sure not to gouge the seal housing.

there is a seal between the trans and t-case. NO RTV...

While you have the t-case out, replace the input seal of the t-case.

i think i am having the same problem. the leak is slow so far. it just barely drips and doesn't really fall to the ground. do you by chance have a picture of your problem so i can compare it to mine?
