    Parked on incline, leaks tranny fluid- no leaks on level ground

    Poor car ('72 Deville) if I park it in my drive way, nose up, it leaks transmission fluid but nose down and flat ground, no issues. What can be the cause of this? The rear tailshaft seal is new (4 months old) but only leaks on incline. Should I worry or not...

    I'd take another look at the seals and gaskets. Wipe everything down so it's relatively oil free, go drive the car around for a bit to warm everything up, then park it in the position it leaks in, get underneath, and look for the source of the leak. If it's more than a slow drip, the source should be obvious.
