Good Evening, I only have a couple words of advice from being in that position before at work. Replace your rubber transmission cooler lines with new ones. Also check out and probably replace your rear main seal on the engine since you are so close to it, how many times are you going to be that close to it. Lastly be careful they are awkwardly shaped and even after doing a few I am always overly cautious because I do not ever want to drop one. Oh and use the right fluid because it has friction modifiers that regular dex III does not. Hope this helps.

Transmission fluid coming from the front of my trans

If its dripping from the Torque converter cover it probably needs a new front seal on the transmission. Gotta pull the tranny to replace the seal. Just make sure its not coming from above like where the tranny lines go into the transmission. sometimes a leak above will settle and drip at the lowest point.

I'm not sure about what gasket to check, but I've always left my manual tranny's connected to the transaxles and removed the axles at the transaxle. This made simpler by popping the ball joints out, thus allowing the hub assembly to swing away. Hope this helps.

I have a 1993 Chevy WT1500 pickup with a leaking transmission.

did you use lock tight on the torque converter bolts when installing them? it may be coming loose and ruining the seals. It doesn't take much. You may have some kind of buildup on your output shaft or a bur of some type that is cutting the seal. Check the outside hub of the torque conv. for roughness or spurs. The seals should work if everything is done right.

Leaking tranny fluid by the torque converter is this my rear seal?

It is most likely the front seal on the Tranny, or a leaking tranny pan gasket.
The rear seal on the engine would leak motor oil

Is the rear main seal on a 1999 gmc yukon a 1 piece or 2 piece seal. Leaking oil real bad from back of motor.

its a one piece. should be the metal one with the rubber inside seal. of corse you gatta pull the tranny but its a good time to change fluids and maybe slap a new torque converter in. changing the rear main is pretty easy after the tranny is out.

if you are getting a true rebuilt transmission they will include a torque convertor. do not use the old one. plus it will also void any warranty on the trans.

Assuming that it is tranny fluid, and not engine oil, there is only one seal, and your torque converter goes into it. Anyway, what you're in for is pulling the tranny, no matter what. Then it's pretty simple to pull the torque converter out, and change the seal. You want to make sure it's done right, though. That's an expensive transmission.

You should add enough fluid to register on the stick. Just add 1 quart at a time and check the stick.

Don't assume that the torque converter is completely full.

Once you are up to the proper level, test to see if it goes forward and backward OK.

Hopefully the transmission is OK after being possibly run with no fluid in it.

Let the vehicle sit and idle and look on the ground for leaks, watch for the hoses that go to the radiator as they are prone to leak sometimes.
