Trans dipstick leak

I changed the filter and transmission fluid and now the bolt for the dipstick drips. Did I lose a seal or something?

Probably.
On the dip-tube bolt, there are 2 aluminum washers, one on each side of the "banjo" fitting, like on any other "banjo" fitting,( like the fuel filter).
If one was forgotten, you would have a leak.
In my last trans filer kit, there were the 2 washers and the transmission oil pan seal as well as the filter.
Good luck

Thanks Tony.

My kit contained no seals. I will have to pick these up.
