Doesn't surprise me, time to replace.


Better check your tranny cooler and lines, if their plugged or restricted you could be experiencing a tranny overheat. If not overheating then it is the seal and better check the torque converter for a ridge cut in it on the shaft.


When you engine heats up thigs expand so the seals leak. Try some leak seal.....what you got to loose..??


I had a bronco 2 that did the same thing. It was some sort of bands. I forget the name of them though.i know the name had the word bands in it though. Maybe it was just bands
