Transmission Leak


I had a power steering hose blow and while the car was raised noticed the rear half of the transmission pan showed signs of a leak. This along with very minor and infrequent lag or kick from the transmission seems to confirm a leak.

I am not the original owner and see that the transmission fluid was changed 12/2014 by the dealer, and the car was serviced by amco 10/2015, 8/2016, 6/2017, 6/2018.

I called amco to see if they changed the tranny fluid and pan gasket bc if they did it should not be leaking -- maybe its under warranty but they need the plate number or prior owners name. Putting that aside,

I see this model requires a pump and does not have a fill tube. Is that correct. Is this a DIY repair

Also, I notice the front strut/shock absorber/suspension boots are cracked. Can those be replaced wo replacing the entire assembly.
