Do you suggest tracing the leak or just use BLUEDEVIL transmission sealer? Just pours out when running and drips when off. Transmission not going in 1st smoothly but 2nd/3rd fine.

    Probably a transmission cooler line. Sealer will not work, just wasting money. Find the leak and replace it, for proper fix.
