If it is a new transmission and leaking right from the start, there's most likely nothing you can do other than replace the torque converter support bearing behind it and the seal ,
if its been rebuild, I have seen the pump bolts loosen due to improper torque and the symptoms are the same and no sealer will work,
if its been a good trans and just needs some help, give it a fluid change with a new filter and add lucas trans seal and anti slip to the system and you should be fine in no time, maybe even another 10K miles.

In all honesty I don't think there is a quick fix for any gasket leak . There are lots of cans of miracles but they will usually not do the job. Best thing is buck up and change the seal.

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.

Transmission loi leak and took to the dealer fix the leak what else could it be

Where does the leak appear to be coming from? Front of tranny or rear. Does it leak only when truck is moving? If at the front of tranny could very well be the main seal on the tranny, this would require you to drop the tranny to replace.
Please let me know if I may further assist.
Best regards,

Can get all forward gears but can not put it into reverse gear unless the car has been warmed up for ten minutes

The seals inside your transmission are bad and leaking by and they don't start to seal until the tranny fluid warms up and swells the seals. To temporarily fix this problem you can pour some brake fluid into your transmission fluid. This will swell the seal in the transmission and it should start working again. This is only a temporary fix however, eventually you will ned to replace or rebuild your tranny. I used this method on a turbo trans 350 and got a year of service out of it that way before I had to replace the tranny. Just do not put too much brake fluid into the tranny, I would recommend one or two capfuls to start with.

My 94 chevy is leaking tranny fluid from the line to the radiator

What are you asking hear, if you know wear its leaking then you have to bite the bullet and fix it, there is no easy way, the only other way is you have to take the cross member out and drop the tranny down to get a clear shot at it its up to you.

Manual Transmission Filter?

The Borg Warner T-5 manual transmission has no filter. Assuming the leak is not really the rear main seal of the engine leaking, which is more likely, then it leaking from the front of the transmission. You will need to drop the transmission to get to the front seal on the first motion shaft. Unless you are really mechanically inclined or have a friend who is, leave it to a good shop.

Check the tranny fluid often, add before it gets to the add mark, it's best to not let it get low, this will kill a tranny. Check to see if u can determine where the leak is coming from so u can fix it. It could be a cooling line from trans to radiator, or front or rear trans seal. Best to fix the leaks, but if they aren't too bad, and u can't afford to fix them, make sure u don't let fluid get low.
