You can replace the seal. some use an o ring some use a grommet. either way pull the tube out. have to remove the bellhousing bolt that holds tube. and change out seal. remember when you remove the tube fluid is going to pour out so have a pan underneath.

If its leaking out the top of the dipstick shaft then its way over filled. I would double check and make sure you have the right level of fluid in it. Too much trans oil can cause foaming and ruin your seals if it hasn't already. Transmissions are hard to work on internally and I don't have the experience to give you a lot of advice on that. If its coming from around where the dipstick shaft is connected to the trans rather than the open hole at the end, then it sounds like it is detaching and needs to be welded back on or replaced but I would need to see a pic of it to see what kind it is. Some have an extended tube with the dip stick in it and other trans have just a hole and the stick sits flush on the block.

Car starts and when you give it gas it wont go any where and the rpm hand goes up and still dont move

This sounds like transmission problems, some of these models do not have a transmission dip stick to check the transmission fluid level.
The first step is to see if this car has a dip stick to check the transmission fluid level. Low fluid will cause this problem also or if there is a leak and fluid leaks low after time until it gets to low and transmission wont move.
if this model does not have a dip stick for the transmission then you will need to take it to a tranny or repair shop and have them check it.

If you have a dip stick and the fluid is full then you may have internal transmission problems and again will need a shop to check it out. Make sure if the fluid is low and you are adding you will need to make sure you are using the correct fluid or damage will occur , the type is written on the stick, look closely and you will see the writing ,

Where do you pour transmission fluid in for 1998 Chevy Blazer

There's a red handled dip stick located on the rear of passenger's side of the engine, this is the place you put in the fluid and check the level. A small long necked funnel helps, be carful not to overfill it as doing so may cause a major leak from over pressurization.

How do I check the transmission fluid, and do I add the transmission fluid to the same place as where the dip stick is?

Pull the dip stick out and check it while the truck is running in park, Yes you add it through the dip stick tube if necessary, but a little at a time don't over fill it.

Hi, if there is no dip stick, the transmission may be sealed. in this case, your issue will be a main seal or faulty transmission pane seal(gasket). if possible, raise your vehicle so that you can get a good look at the pan and main seal area..

Transmission Leak

Tal, The dipstick tube does have a cup seal that is used to seal the tube to the transmission case. They can leak, you would have to remove the bolt on the transmission bell housing, pull the tube up out of the hole and replace the seal.
The plug you refer to is for pressure testing. It is a pipe plug fitting that can be resealed with teflon tape from the hardware store.
Good luck let me know.
PS. make sure the transmission fluid level is not over full.
