My transmission has been leaking from the bottom. It’s a really small one. So I’m choosing between putting something in it to stop the leak, replace the seal that’s warn out, or completely rebuilt the transmission including the seal. Any suggestions?

My car was at an incline, I totally forgot that’s not how it’s checked. After checking it the right way. It was actually below the mark, I topped it off before going to work and will check again tomorrow

I’ll upload two pictures it’s the left side, I’ll circle it. Right in the middle where the bolts are. I had my power steering replaced so here’s directly under my car.

I have to get my transmission rebuilt. Since it’s a small leak, I’ll just wait. It would cost up to $3k or around $1k to replace it with a low mileage transmission.

Times are hard and I have not touch my transmission other than to put in fluid every few weeks. I found other post of people having the same problem from the same area and one who had it fixed, but didn’t even post how it was fixed. If anyone has information on a similar leak. Please let me know

Final update,
After looking through YouTube and this site. I found the area that was leaking on my transmission is where the shift shaft seal is located. After I got it replaced, I’ve seen no leak for the past month and my transmission is bone dry. Thank god I didn’t need a rebuilt. I’ll post pictures and here is the part number 91209-612-003 & exact size 12x22x7

The pictures is with the cover taken off. Held by 3 maybe 4 bolts.

When you top it off, make sure the car is cold. Have it turned off for a few hours, or top it off in the morning. Put it up the middle mark, or as close as possible. You could cycle the gears if you want.
