Transmission fluid pouring out when motor is running

While driving down the California highway 58 I noticed a strong smell and then smoke in my 1989 itasca suncruiser pulled over and there's transmission fluid everywhere the bellhousing cover was hanging by one bolt removed doghouse cover there were two bolts on the passenger side broke off and one loose and a half inch gap between transmission and engine added two bottles of fluid no leak turn it on and it's spraying out I tighten the loose bolt now it pours out from what looks like the front of the converter

May have to pull transmission and replace front seal. Then replace bolts. Sounds like transmission work was done previously and bolts were not torqued properly.

The torque converter is bolted to the engine flywheel.

It's splined into the transmission and that's where the seal is.

With the Trans shifting around, the seal is torn up and needs to be replaced.

The transmission needs to come out. While out, the torque converter and transmission needs to be checked for cracks and damage.

Are you going to make repairs or shop? How far away from home are you ? Either way.. big repair.. try not run it.. you may burn up trans. Good luck let us know what you did and maybe better members then me will help you

Look close where the converter engages the transmission pump.

A crack will slowly cut the seal and leak again.Click image for larger version

If it was mine I'd remove the front pump and replace the bushing where the converter enters the pump, the pump to case gasket along with the front seal and the large 'O' ring around the pump housing.
Like Twinboat said, check the converter hub carefully. If in doubt, throw it out.
Be certain the converter is fully inserted into the front pump before tightening the bell housing to engine bolts. If you've done it correctly you will have to pull the converter ahead after the bell housing bolts are tightened to bolt the converter to the flex plate. The converter should turn freely so you can line up the bolt holes.
It's a good time to replace the trans filter and replace all the fluid.

It would also be helpful to know what engine and transmission combination you have. Once you get the trans. out please post some pictures on here.

Welcome to the forum. It seem you have already gotten some ideas on the fix for your tranny.
