Just did a tranny service on my '93 AOD (filter/gasket/chrome pan). Got about 6 quarts in and I hear it leaking underneath. It's pouring out between the tailshaft and inside of seal! The front end is raised up. Tell me it's just because I have the driveshaft removed.....please! I'm not a big auto trans expert. Is that normal or do I have an issue?

Yeah, the seal on the end seals the fluid in against the driveshaft. No driveshaft, nothing to seal it against.

They do make plugs
