Auto trans leak.

Doesn't seem to be from the gasket or trans cooler tube.

I have been plagued with this annoying leak out of my transmission. It's not coming out of the gasket but rather some where above it. I took a mirror to it and it looks like it is coming either from the shifter mechinism or the sensor.

Has anyone experienced a leak in this area? What did you do to fix? Thanks.

Does the leak look like its coming from where the TC is bolted to the trans? If so, it might be the rear seal of the transmission. This is what mine looked like while it was leaking.

Doesn't look like it is leaking that way. Seems to be coming out on the drivers side and is coating the linkage and sensor on that side first. I have the 30rh with my 4 banger.

If you look at the picture on the drivers side there is a spot for the linkage and a sensor. That looks like what is wet. Thanks
