Default Transmission Leak

Hello everybody, I have a 2000 Deville ( Mary Kay Edition) It's bleeding Trans fluidwhen I put the car in reverse, not much but enough. After about a week it's down about a pint. I have no shifting or overdriveproblems at all. The car has 103,000 miles on it and the local trans shop said because of the mileage I should just have the trans rebuilt. Thanks in advanced if anyone has any ideas.
Jenny

Thanks for the reply, A friend checked the pan bolts and all was ok, What happens is when you put the car in gear it pucks out a small amount of fluid and without having the car on a lift you can't see where it's coming from. I'm bringing it to a mechanicthis morningthat was recommended to me. I'll postthe results.

Hello Everybody,
Ok the trans leak is fixed, the driver side cv joint was bad and it messed up the seal going into the trans but now I've got another problem the car has been perfect up until last night when the trans started shifting very hard 1st 2nd 3rd and overdrive and also as you are slowing down you feel the same, at one point the speedo would not show how fast I was going for about 2 miles and then all of a sudden it popped on and I was going 50, Any Ideas

Thanks, Jenny

I know this is an old thread but the problem is a perfect description of a failing vehicle speed sensor, cheap to buy and easy to fix, under $200.00 p&l.
