Re: leaking fluid in transmission
I assume u have an automatic trans., there are 2 types for that year, model 41TE, which to drain and fill for a trans fluid change is 4 qts, not including what's in the torque converter, and model 31th (14 bolt fluid pan) which holds 8.9 qts including the torque converter. Interesting how my source gave one w/ torque con. one w/out.

check your rear main seal. Also try changing your trans fluid, trans filter, and your transmission pan seal. I recommend you put lucas transmission oil in it and a quart of the Lucas Stop Slip and leak sealer
I'm not sure I am following your problem. A transmission holds 10-15 quarts including the torque converter. When you drain the fluid you are changing about 4 quarts of the full amount. Once you fill the transmission to the full mark on the dipstick, you should not be adding more fluid unless there is a leak. Or if the vac modulator is damaged and allowing fluid to be pulled into the engine. The fluid is checked with the engine running in park.
22's answer as to location is correct. Check the fluid after the vehicle has warmed up and with the engine running. Check your manual for fluid type if any is required (should be type "F"). Do not overfill as it will not help. If fluid is a qt low you ahould check transmission lines going from radiator to the tranny as there is a leak somewhere. Also look around the transmission pan for leaks. Slipping of the transmission is the most obvious indicator of low fluid, stepping on the gas but the transmission doesn't push you faster. Hope this helps. GT
Transmissions dont "use" fluid. If you are replacing half a quart a week you have a leak somewhere.. Try tightening the transmission pan bolts. If this doesnt stop the leak you may have a bad pan gasket. There are also two small tubes running from the ****** to the radiator for cooling. One or both may be leaking. Put a liece of cardboatd or wood under your truck to catch drips. This will help you to locate where it is leaking from.
SOUND LIKE A TRANSMISSION FLUID LEAK.I WOULD NOT KEEP DRIVING.LOOKS LIKE TRANSMISSION COOLER LINES LEAKING.MORE YOU DRIVE VECHICLE TRANSMISSION PUMPING OUT ALL FLUID FROM BROKEN OR LOOSE COOLER LINES.IF ALL FLUID LEAK OUT YOUR TRANSMISSION YOU WILL HAVE TRANSMISSION FAILURE.BEST TO GET A FRIEND OR COWORKER TO PICK UP YOUR SON AND TAKE YOU TO WORK.GET LEAK FIX DONT DRIVE CAR LOSING TOO MUCH FLUID.TRANSMISSION LEAK FIX CHEAPER THAN BUYING ANOTHER TRANSMISSION COST $2000.00 OR LITTLE MORE.
You need to remove the power steering pump and using a powersteering pulley remover, remove the pulley. The puller will grip around the flange on the center hub of the pulley. Some auto parts stores will rent these tools out to save you some money, try Autozone
