My 1997 Chevy suburban 1500 leaks transmission fluid from the top when started but I cant find the leak whats the best way to check it

It should go without saying that your question cannot be answered without knowing the YEAR, MAKE, and MODEL of your vehicle.

That being said, you will need to put your truck up on a hoist and determine where the leak is coming from. No magic bullet available, sorry.

Transmission leak

More than likely this is the transmission filter gasket leaking. They come as a kit with a new filter and a gasket. Be sure and check the level of transmission fluid as per your manual. If there is not sufficient fluid in there it can ruin the transmission.You may already be experiencing slipping in the transmission. The most common leak on a vehicle is the rear main seal. Nearly every car/truck eventually does that. Any other leaks are not acceptable and your car is trying to warn you.

2000 chevy metro leaks transmission fluid

Yea! A Metro owner. Welcome. Well, you have such a big, burly wrap-around engine in there, it's gonna be hard to see, just kidding.
So, it's an automatic, I presume? There aren't that many places for them to leak, fortunately. The obvious places are the pan gasket for the bottom pan on the transmission/transaxle case, the two cooling lines coming out of the case and going to front of car to a fluid cooler either mounted in front of the radiator or in the radiator assembly itself, and the two drive axe seals. There is a hidden seal on the front mainshaft, but if it is leaking, fluid would come out on the lower plate between the transaxle and the rear of engine. The plate may be or have an inspection cover to remove, but the fluid would be dripping out the very bottom there and fluid would be present inside the inspection cover.
That should cover the main leak prone areas. Sometimes a dipstick tube's O-ring may fail and oil seeps out around the tube.
Good luck with the metro. Once you find the leak, it should be pretty apparent how to fix it. Installing driveaxle seals would be hardest, or most involved.

Transmission fluid leaks out from the bottom right after the Transmission fluid is put in.what would need to be done to fix it an how.? Dash bored gages are out.?

sounds like it could be a seal for your fill tube, or could be broken or loose cooler lines, they are all in that general area, crawl under, have someone fill it and look to see wherre it is coming out. take a flashlight with you.

1988 GMC 1500 with 305 leaks atf fluid bad only in reverse?

Spray fluid may not be the gasket. The word spray scares me it sounds like it could be comming from the pump but you say it olny happens in reverse. I dont know but I was leaking fluid. I chaged the pan seal that did not fix it. I sent my car to a loacl shop for a front seal. did not want to do that all by myself. The man at the shop told me he put a new seal in but it still sprayed fluid. I took it to another shop and he said I needed a new trans pump. NowI have no fluid leaks.

Put in transmission in feburary.

you will still need add the proper type fluid to proper fill level, get under the truck, clean up transmission so you can visually monitor where the leak is coming from. Chock the wheels, emergency brake set, start and idle vehicle check for leaks. If trans is leaking it will probably be a front seal (oil will drip from small hole in the bottom of bell housing), pan gasket, loose cooling line to radiator, or rear tail shaft leak ( where drive shaft enters the trans.) Don't forget to check the lines for pin holes and the radiator for leaks.
