Replace the pump seal
there is a bellows type carbon on ceramic seal that over time the rubber cracks , or if run without water will damage the carbon seal surface on the ceramic base
any pump or irrigation shop can affect the repair

Pump leaks from the bottom after running, is this normal?


No . the problem is that the ceramic seal that seals between the fluid and the motor and bearings is leaking ( probably from running dry) or the rubber that holds the carbon seal insert has a crack. Suggest you pull the pump down to fix it otherwise the water/ fluid will get into the bearing of the motor and will cause a major failure

Corrosion in submersible pumps


As long as the fluid is not corrosive to the pump material, the fluid pH is 8.5 to 9, and the pump is always submerged, corrosion will not happen. What's your problem regarding hydraulic loading? are you getting less than what is designed?
Seal leak is caused by worn shaft, corroded shaft, worn seal material, seal material not compatible with the fluid, and wobbling shaft due to defective bearings.

Transmission fluid leakage from stater motor area. 5.7L Vortec


If transmission fluid is dripping off the bellhousing your torque converter seal is leaking or your transmission pump seal is leaking. Chances are the torque converter seal is leaking since the torque converter is spinning on it any time the engine is turning, the pump seal dosen't move it just keeps fluid inside the transmission. Even though it leaks with or without the engine running I'm willing to bet if you got underneath it with the engine running you will see it leaks more with the engine running. Now if either seal is leaking it will require the engine to be removed from the transmission to get to the seal. Sorry but this isn't going to be a cheap quick fix.
