just went to the garage and found a large puddle of trans fluid all around the pan now it is dripping on the front drive shaft what are the common seals that go on this trans? the Modulator valve is dry around it, the outher owner did replace the trans mount looks to leaking around knockdown cable possible O ring ? Is the kick down cable easy to remove or is this a trans shop repair?

sound like you need a shop.
to find that source of a leak.
there are many paths for it to leak.
TC, pan, TV dentent. shift rod., MOD. tail shaft. oil pump. etc.

some have a case oring that is very hard to replace

there are more pages not show, shifter seals, and front end ...
off my 3L30 page
see 16, 21 and 27 , all can leak
also the 4wd transfer class, intersection case (hollow)
as a drain, at the bottom ,if it drips ATF then 14 is bad
if the drain drips, GL4 (not pink, ) the the xfr case seal is bad.
