transmission fluid leak

getting a leak near the passenger side front on an AOD. Looks like its coming from the top cooler line but im not sure. car hasnt moved in 3 months, just started doing it the other day.

I was under there and I think I may have moved the lines a bit. Is there a seal or something on that line. I made sure that it was tight and it was. But it looks like it still leaked some.

Lost about a half a quart over night. I made sure to clean everything off and the only spot I saw some was from the line and just below the line. I guess where it dripped down and ran over the edge of the pan.

the fittings the lines are screwed into are just screwed into the case using pipe threads. just probably needs to be tightened or if they are tight, take them out and apply some teflon tape to them and screw them back into the case, BUT DON'T OVERTIGHTEN... could also be the dipstick tube on which there is an o-ring.

yeh i was gonna say that the dipstick is right there too, has that little o-ring attached to it, might of bumped that.... here is a pic of mine, as you can see it is a truck AOD but if you look in the lower left corner you can see the dipstick tube right below the two fittings.

my lines dont screw into the fittings, it looks like it just has some plastic clip holding them in. Where can I get a new oring for the dipstick?

ahh, you have the old style fittings. There is a kit made to replace/update those to the new style thaat seems to work very well. As for the dipstick tube o-ring, stop by the shop tomorrow and see me. I've got a bunch of them laying around
