SOURCE: jeep is leaking fluid from underneath, and oil

You may have a few separate issues. You need to determine the source of the fluid loss and exactly what kind of fluid it is that is leaking. From what you said, it may be the oil pressure sending unit, or that and something else. The clank shifting could be a bad universal joint on the driveshaft. Check those with the suspension unloaded or have someone watch from the side underneath to see if there is excessive movement in each joint as you move from reverse to drive.
Difficult to diagnose your problem on-line as seeing the problem is the key to fixing it. If you can't find it, have a professional do that for still have the option of doing the work yourself!

Rolling, clanking sound from transmission when put into gear; goes away at road speed.

Sounds like a defective tranny shaft bearing. Remove it from the car and tear it down for inspection.

Major transmission problem. That's what the flashing Check Engine light means.

If the Check Engine light is on all the time, it means there is a "fault code" stored in the computer. Take it to an auto parts store (like Auto Zone) and ask them to read the codes to see what it says. They should do it for free. If they won't, go to another auto parts store.

Run the fault codes to see if the TCM ( transmission control module) is faulty or servos have failed . have a pressure test done on the box to check operating pressures for the clutch packs and bands.

Engine has been replaced. Never had a problem with the transmission before but engine vibrates while idling and shifting all gears. Took truck to 2nd shop and they removed the transmission from the motor...

I'd be inclined to say that you have a bad torque converter. Check to see if the transmission shop replaced it, bought a new one (probably around $40.00 depending on your location), or replaced it with a used one. I'd think that the second shop would have installed a new one since they were there anyway with removing the transmission. On the off chance...the torque converter just may not be in all the way and causing the vibration.

I think my automatic transmission modulator valve is going out because it jerks and vibrates when i accelerate anything above 50 MPH.

90 % of the time jerking or vibration is usually caused by the engine and not the transmission. The most common cause is cylinder misfiries caused by the ignition system that cause the vehicle to ****, stumble, or shudder which make it appear and feel as though the transmission is the cause. Most transmission problems will cause harsh shifts, slippage, and/or delayed engagement but rarely jerks or vibrations. I'd start by looking at the spark plugs, plug wires, and coil packs to make sure they are all ok first before going any further. The reason most of these problems are more noticable over 50 mph is that the torque converter clutch is engaged at this point and it provides a solid connection between the engine and drivetrain which makes engine misfires more noticable. Good luck, hope this helps a bit!
