Had the shaft seal leak about 87k ago on '03,
Probably in '05
Ran it for a few till oem fix
the little puddle looked like a lot, blit you got 28 Oz
Only you would know if the tranny is right, is the little vent clear and turned down from water entering?

Surface gaskets if not molested Gen good, heard

Know of 4 others around you year that have had the seal pinch type (go bad)leak, two twice

Is your primary chain adjusted properly? If it's too tight, it can cause those seals to leak.

Hard to say what your problem is!! Not sure about your year but if like mine the exhaust on the right side has a mounting bolt that attaches to the transmission and they are nefarious for coming loose and leaking transmission fluid. Looks and smells worse than it actually is but can be disconcerning, all that is needed is a tightening of this bolt. What a stupid design!!!!
