My 94 is leaking tranny fluid from the front of the transmission. I drive this thing 100 miles a day to and from work. never any problems. Here is the weird thing, it never leaks during the trips to and from work. it only leaks if I am driving around town. I figure it has to do with the stop and go traffic or speeding up and slowing down. It is a pretty good amount of fluid also. When i pull in my driveway to park after being in town, I can stand there and watch it falling on the ground and it is all over the bottom of the tranny. Anyone ever experienced anything like this, and if so, what am I looking at? The front tranny seal?

It will leak form the front seal after it gets to hot. The problem will get worse over time as the seal harden. It will happen under load and especially when the torque converter slips whcih generates lots of heat.
You could start by getting a trans cooler and figureing out if your TC is locking properly. If its to far gone the trans will have to come out.
