Transmission Leak

I have a 1994 Ford Taurus 3.8L GL Sedan and the transmission is leaking
fluid around the bolts. I have been keeping the levels up by adding fluid as
needed, there doesn't appear to be any problems with shifting or
accelerating.

Is this a seal/gasket issue? How much does it cost to have it done? I have
seen places in my town as low as $29.95 for a flush and new gasket, to
$200.00 for the same service?

Which service would I need Flush and new gasket or the reseal service
offered by Aamco?

I don't know about your year and model, but many had different size
bolts that secured the pan. Since some of the holes were blind, if the
wrong bolt length were inserted into the wrong hole, it would bottom out
and not tighten the pan. You might just investigate this.
