I have one and my mechanic tightened the bell-housing and it stopped. Those XLT's are known for that, especially if you have the V-6 charged engine like mine.

I do not believe one can check the fluid level in the 02 due to a sealed tranny. Check the above suggestions first since they are the easiest. If all ok there bring it to a shop and have the tranny checked out. Absent a leak on the garage floor, sounds like the torque converter.
