I have had a tranny leak for a while that finally got so bad I had to do something about it. I replaced the servo cover seals, valve body gasket, base pan gasket and filter. Thought I was good but drove to the store yesterday and got home with yet still leaking. Looks like it is coming from one of if not both of the servo areas. Would worn servo pin sleeves cause this. If so I am considering buying a set of new servos from AJ1E Superior Solutions, LLC online.

Also note that the truck is shifting fine and other than the leak I don't seem to have any other issues with the transmission.

I would check the vent line also. I had one that was plugged on the atmosphere side, causing it leak above the bell housing. The fluid was running down from above, and made it difficult to determine the source of the leak.
