Came home on Friday after a 2 hour trip and noticed smoke coming out from the rear of the car. Inspected the underneath and noticed transmission fluid splashed on the exoust system and the rear of the tranmission box. Car was parked for the weekend , ne leaks. Drove to work this morning for two hours, same story. Trany fluid leaking again. What could this be?

You need to determine where exactly the fluid is leaking . Did you change your fluid recently?
There are too many possibilities.
1. Rear seal
2. Pan Gasket
3. Rear solenoid
4. Aux pump
5. Governor cover
6. Breather cap (only if overfilled with fluid)
It could be one of these if coming from rear.

Check for correct fluid level. Jack up car start and check for leeks.

It depends on how bad your leak is.
If it's a small leak you can just keep an eye on it and add as needed. Make a few stops along the way.
If it's more serious then I recommend towing it.
Keep in mind, if you run out of fluid while driving it'll make the repair a lot lot more expensive $$$.

I'd check that pan gasket first, since the leak seemed to have happened all at once. In my experience, the seals wear more gradually.

In any event, the rear tranny seal isnt too bad to put in, provided you have the right socket. The drive sdhaft must come off. The front seal needs a tranny removal.

Good luck.
