Why is my transmission getting hot

some antifreeze is red, oil floats so stick your finger in the radiator fill while cold and if it feels oily there's your answer, but more commonly the seals in the clutch pack are going south, as the transmission heats up the oil thins out allowing more oil to pass by the seals, and the drop in hydraulic pressure makes it so the clutch pack cannot fully engage. you could try a can transX or other mechanic in a can to swell the seals but it's just a band aid and doesn't always work,you may want to change the filter also, as now you need to get rid of the extra oil you put in + the can of band aid, so it may not warrant a transmission rebuild if you know what I mean, might not even warrant the price of the filter and fluid, but that's up to you.

Oil leak between oil pan and transmission.

Try running some of that high-mileage engine oil next time you do an oil change (it helps to swell engine seals slightly). If the problem clears up or is reduced, then it's likely that the rear main oil seal is starting to leak a little. The rubber seals will harden up and shrink a little with age.
I would also powerwash the entire area clean, so that way any leak will be easier to monitor and pinpoint.

The Rear Main Seal is the main area for an Oil Leak on the Transmission Side. You will need to drop the transmission to remove the old rear main seal and install the new one.

Need to find a way to put in a rear main seal in my 1989 jeep cherokee 4.0 without pulling the transmission

The Rear main seal on a Cherokee with the 4.0L is a 2-piece seal and the transmission doesn't have to be pulled. You have to remove the oil pan and rear main cap. That's it. The transmission doesn't have to be removed. Hope this helps.

Best of luck

The gears r slipping when temp gets hot just put flid in yesterday does this mean I need new transmission

You may get luck and you may just have a 1-poor line pressure rise due to leaking boost valve, 2-clogged EPC filter screen, 3-failing EPC solenoid, 4-or worst case: leaky seals throughout. First two without removing trans. Seal restorer may fix last problem, but probably R&R. Also try a transmission flush with BG brand products to clean the EPC filter screen and then service the transmission by replacing the boost valve, transmission oil and filter.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck. This should keep you from replacing the transmission if the clutch packs are not to badly worn or damaged which can be inspected when the transmission pan is dropped by the amount of clutch particles collected in the transmission pan.

Oil leak out the rear main seal on a 2000 ford explorer

First, the easiest way IS to remove the transmission, it is a one piece seal, if it were a 2 piece, you would need to remove the oil pan and Rear Main Bearing Cap which in my opinion is alot tougher. When installing the new seal, make sure the the end of the crankshaft is clean of debris, lube the seal before sliding it over the end of the crankshaft to ease installation and some like to apply a thin coat of high temp sealant to the outside surface of the new seal to ensure no leakage. When reinstalling the flywheel/flex plate, proper torque is key because you dont want it working loose and having to remove the transmission again.

Engine Rear Main Seal Leak

neither...rear main seal is broken do to the camshaft rubbing against it. Even fixing it with a new seal it will just leak to just watch the oil lvl and add accordingly.
