Ok, so my transmission has been leaking out from the kickdown cable seal. It's a new cable, and the seal is a flat rubber washer. I tried to seal it with different thickness o-rings, and combinations of o-rings and the washer. It only leaks when the vehicle has been sitting overnight, a fair sized puddle forms. I'm certain that it's not coming from the dipstick or the cooling lines, I added some ultraviolet dye to the fluid and can see exactly where it's coming from. None of the parts stores around have a seal, and my transmission manual doesn't have a schematic on that area, so I really don't know how it was designed to seal in the first place. Thanks for looking

One of the few automatice I owned leaked that way. It turned out my filler tube was bent slightly and was causing the leak. Whne I put the tube in it wouldn't leak. When I put the bolt in the bellhousing it moved just enough to cause the leak.
