Tranny Leak, any common place for a jeep to leak

I have a 2000 sahara auto and the tranny has started leaking a little. I got under there and cleaned off all the excess fluid. It looked like it was leaking a little around the pan gasket at the front of the tranny. I tightened the pan bolts down some but it still continues to leak. I have had the jeep for about 2 months and was wondering if the autos in jeeps had a common spot that leaked. I guess I will pull the pan and put a new gasket on it to see if that works. What kind of fluid and how much to drop the pan.

Thanks
Brad

buy the rubber reusable gasket...EDIT: I think they offer one of these, instead of the cork gasket

ATF+3 is fine...

4 qts needed for a service fill (dropping the pan)...

Yes, they do offer the Rubber Reusable gasket. While you under there I would put a deep tranny pan..

So is it common for the jeeps to have pan gasket leaks?

Can't answer about how common leaks are with Jeep automatics, don't have one/never had one.

But be careful when tightening up bolts when trying to stop a leak. It is real easy to break bolts, strip threads, distort the pan lip, etc...
