    Leaks often occur when the transmission casing gets hot and expands or gaskets expand. You need to locate the source of the leak and repair it, it will get worse and could potentially dump out all the oil in the transmission.

    when you move, where or what area does it leak from?? Front seal is a common issue when the pressure is higher.
