Hi Cornate . It sounds like your rear main oil seal has gone . Not a cheap job . Judge how serious it is by topping up your oil level to the correct level and reset your trip counter . Check your oil level weekly and top up and work out how much oil is being used/lost (Per litre / miles) . Regards VW Audi tech

SOURCE: 95 ford escort transmission leak
Dont waste your time and money trying to use a transmission stop leak product, they don't work on large leaks, you say the leak is excessive in this case the you must remove the transmission to access and remove the torque converter, after you have removed the torque converter carefully inspect the torque convert imput shaft for wear and also you will need to visually inspect the transmission front pump bushing for wear also, I have seen it all to often people just replace the seal thinking it was just a seal failure, well more times than not there is a reason for seal more than just the age of the seal, excessive wear on trans pump bushing and torque converter imput shaft is usaully the cause, check and repair those as good practice during this repair unless you just like to do the repair over again for free... also check the torque converter run out, sometime when they are repaired they are welded back together somewhat crooked which will cause it to spin off of a true center, this will cause immediate damage to transmission. Check also your engines crankshaft end play for looseness this can cause wobble which will transfer to transmission causing this problem as well... do the repair thouroughly and who ever does it for you have them check all that I listed and you should get a good repair which will last without issues.... please rate my help thanks...

When installing a torque converter there are two separate steps for two separate shafts with two different sets of splines.You must first turn the torque converter when on the input shafts until you feel Both steps engage one at a time.And with each step the torque converter will go deeper into the bell housing.To tell if you have caught each of the steps correctly you will be able to easily turn the torque converter,even when the trans and engine are pulled up tight.There will even be a gap between the flex plate and torque converter.What ever you do don't use the starter to get the torque converter all the way in.Take out the two bottom bolts of the trans and replace them with 1" longer ones.Then remove all the other bolts from the housing.Slide the trans as far back on those two bolts as you can until the torque converter will turn easily again,then turn while pushing in toward the trans until you feel the converter slip in that last step.Slide the trans back up to the engine and make sure the converter still spins freely,then finish your install.My first trans I literally broke the transmission housing by not fully seating the converter.Hope this helps?
