Replace torque converter seal. common issue around 200,000km. its a big job. 5hrs labor if they know what they are doing. also replace rngine rear seal at the same time since the tranny is out. its only $30 extra so why chance having to remove the tranny again :)

I have oil dripping. Where could that be coming from?

Is it oil or transmission fluid? The color will tell you, transmission will be red. Best bet is to clean the engine and then watch closely to see where the oil is coming from. Possible locations include Valve cover, bad oil filter seal, leaking heads, bad main seal.

The transmission filter is stopped up. Change it and add some new fluid and "trans x" conditioner and hope for the beat. Otherwise you need a transmission.

When it got cold the reverse stopped working. transmission fluid was low,. does the wrong transmission fluid make a big diff

Yes the wrong transmission fluid make a difference and low transmission fluid also can cause this. Mercon* V I believe is what is used on your transmission, but please recheck that information in your owners manual. Good luck and keep me posted and also note: transmission fluid will cause transmission failure.

.The seal that keeps fluid inside the transfer case and thus the transmission is vital for the smooth operation of the vehicle's transmission. When fluid is leaking from a broken seal, it reduces the volume of fluid that is currently working inside the transmission. A loss in fluid pressure also occurs, which will make shifting gears more difficult for an automatic or manually shifted transmission. If you notice that your transmission is having difficulty shifting to higher or lower gears, you should contact a certified mechanic as soon as possible to inspect this problem and offer a solution.
