Be sure to check your engine coolant as well, the trans is cooled via the radiator, so you may be losing ATF there. Where does the fluid appear to be coming from? You can use a can of brake cleaner to wash down the trans underneath, and blow dry with compressed air. Maybe once its cleaned off, you will be able to determine where the leak is coming from.

I am planning to purchase a 2003 taurus wagon with 107k miles The car runs good actually very good The only problem I see is it the gear selector although it selects the gear properly has a lot of slack...

My 97 Mountaineer did the same thing and it was 2 screws that needed tightening . Take it to a dealer BEFORE you buy it and get them to look at it to make sure that it's not anything more serious than that.

96 taurus wagon goes to neutral when vehicle comes to full stop.

That would be your neutral park switch is bad or broken. If the shifter linkage is not aligned with the neutral park switch it will not work properly. Located on drivers side on top of Trans.
