Leaking transmission and check engine light stays on

(1999 Honda Accord)
my Check engine light turned on about 3 months ago and stays on when I start my Honda Accord ex. The day after the light turned on my Honda began to lag to the point where it became unable to drive. Every time I press the gas my transmission slips and sounds as if it were in neutral. I also noticed my tranny was leaking under the front end of my car. When I add transmission fluid my Honda runs great but then it leaks over night and slips again. I checked the error codes and they were P0070 P0740. Help please
What seems to make the problem better or worse? It is better when transmission fluid is added
How long have you had this problem? 2 months

Hello, you have transmission issues; your first code is likely P0700 which means transmission system concern, and P0740 which refers to the torque converter lock up system. The first concern I would have is that you have not resolved your concern from the first signs of symptoms, meaning what has been wrong could have caused additional problems by now.

Testing is required to find out the source of your leak first, and then the operation of the transmission should be evaluated using a proper Honda compatible diagnostic tool that can monitor the operation.
