most common cause would be the input seal, but it could also be the gasket between the pump and the case. either way the trans has to come out to be fixed. if you do this yourself make sure to inspect the torque converter for grooves where it rides in the seal. if it's grooved you may need to have it sleeved or replace the converter.
