Have you checked the fluid level? Cold, it should be about 1/4 inch below the mark (at least on my 88, 300TE-check your manual). If it leaks more when sitting for a few days, perhaps it is overfilled.
To be sure the leak isn't above the gasket, wipe the pan, then tape strips of newspaper around the pan, above the gasket area. A leak will show fluid on the paper.
