    First off welcome, you have come to the right site for some great info!! Second, see if you can have someone else try and diagnose the tranny leak, then take it to the guy that "fixed" and have him check it, chances are they will come up with two different answers, try and get the that rebuilt the engine and tranny into a hard spot, he most likely wont say yeah its leaking, I must have done something wrong. If you can get some pics up of the leaks, anyone on this sight with tranny experiance can give you there opinion as well, just have firepower ready when you go back and tell the guy he did crappy work.
