If the Tranny is original, likely due for a rebuild. Many well known Tranny shops offer a free inspection/test/quote.

After 230,000 miles, the gunk caked on the seals is probably the only thing holding the transmission together. Not much point in changing it now, I'd just drive it until it stops moving, then get a rebuild.
