You will probably need to pull the trans and inspect the converter and front seal on the trans. Before taking this step clean the trans really well and verify exactly where the leak is coming from. Fluid leaks can be strange and make a minor problem seem major. If it is the converter then it could be cracked or you might luck out and it have aftermarket drain plugs in it.

Good luck.

I might be wrong (if so someone please correct me) but there are only 2 spots in there that can leak trans fluid. The front seal of the trans and the torque converter itself. I'm not sure how you would isolate it off the rig without a bench test setup. You could pull it yourself and take it to a trans shop for the diagnosis, then bring it home a repair it yourself (just an idea).
