TJ Transmission Front Pump Leak TF999

Iíve hit the wall and donít know what else to do. It seems like my transmission leak is back and I need help on trying to solve the problem.
Problem: Transmission is leaking from the front pump.
Action taken to correct the problem: Replaced the front seal, bushings, gaskets on the front pump.
After the repair the Jeep ran without any issues for 2 weeks approximately 400 miles of driving. Then one day I just noticed this puddle of transmission fluid on the floor.
Action taken to correct the problem: Took the transmission down again and replaced the front seal and the torque converter.
The Jeep has been running without any leak for about 3 weeks. Last night I noticed a small drip of transmission fluid (RED) on my garage floor. I am not rushing to take the transmission down the 3rd time unless figure of what is actually causing the leak.
Here are other known problems with the Jeep that might help. I have a vibration with I think is coming from the driveline about 60mph. I have a rear main seal or oil pan seal that leak about a drip about one a month. 50% of my driving is high speed for a jeep 70mph at 3000 RPM.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The only thing i could think of is your trans is overheating. What gears and tires do you have?

Fill in your profile. You have a 32RH (4.0L) or a 30RH (2.5L) transmission...

See page 9 of the attached link. There are several seals and O rings that can leak in the front of the automatic.

:crickets:

Thought so.......

OP.... make sure you do not have a coincidental problem of another and separate leak. Someone else mentioned the stock tranny cooler lines which are known to leak and frankly, are you sure you have the pan installed correctly. The torque spec on the pan bolts is very low... 10lbs if I recall correctly and over tightening can crush the cork gasket and cause leaks. The one piece silicone gasket works better and if that doesn't help, you can always RTV the pan. Check that first before you go back to the pump.

Thats all that was needed.

Telling him to fill out his profile is what was needed for others to also help him...

Negatory.

I didn't need that to help him at this point... and neither does anyone else who has even a passing familiarity with these transmissions.

Both the 30 and 32 transmissions are in fact very similar to each other with respect to their internals as both evolved from the original Torqueflite and the 900 series of Chrysler transmissions. My rebuilt 32RH in fact now has the larger 999 bands in it.

Your name fits you and not because you are into bikes.
