Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
It's drastically leaking fluid and we believe it is leaking from the seal
There are input seals and output seals on the trans.. input seal is the one where the trans is connected to the engine and requires the removal of the transmission, very hard complicated job. The output seals are where the axels come out of the trans.. these can be replace without removing the trans but again.. a hard job.. Are you possibky talking about the Trans Pan is leaking (bottom of trans) .. if so it can be removed and a new gasket installed.. If you do this replace the filter at the same time

Have you gotten under & checked the driveaxle seals?
The big leak will be the torque converter pump seal
That requires removing the transxale
Sort of old to do that & not rebuild the trans while your at it

Check the rear wheel cylinders if you have drum brakes on the rear. Check the master cylinder cap to be sure it's on right & snug. Use D.O.T. 3 fluid,not synthetic. If you're losing fluid there's a reason. Check the front brake pads & slides for the calipers,could be frozen with rust & eating up the pads. Fluid would seem low if the pads are shot.

there are two pins one on each side that lock, you have to stick a small screw driver under each one to open them from the filter side. It is easier to remove the filter from the bracket
