I have an always present droplet of ATF hanging from the bellhousing. It never seems to drip or leave drop spots on the driveway. I figure it is a weeping front seal, but I'll let that sleeping dog lay as my fluid level does not drop.

The kickdown solenoid has an o-ring and a crush washer. Very easy DIY. The fill tube has either an o-ring or a crush washer depending on the tranny I believe, again another easy DIY.
