In my experience any automatic will leak a little it it sits that long without moving. I think seals dry out and it wicks out maybe? Dunno. I try to move mine every 3 months max. A quart sounds like a lot, I would have said a cup maybe. Are there any wet spots on bottom of the trans? Is it under the pan, rear seal, speedometer driven gear, front???
