transmission seems to be leaking fluid out of the inspection plate at random times

It is not uncommon for the 4R100 transmission to leak out of the front pump seal, especially at times when it is getting hot. In some cases, removing and replacing the front pump and seal is helpful, if this is confirmed as the leak source. But, in others, the seal leaking is merely a symptom of a bigger internal problem which is causing an overheating transmission.
