leaking brand new tci th350 part number 311038

I just recently got my truck running and the trans was leaking it looked like from the pan. so i replaced the gasket with a good one and torqued it to 15 ft lbs. it is a new tci unit with a brand new tci converter. it only leaks when it is running it looks like that it leaks around a plug on the passenger side right above pan rail was wondering if this is something common or do i have some kind of warranty issue. its in a body dropped truck and the clearance to see is very limited due to the exhaust being on the truck. tomorrow im going pull the exhaust off the header and fire it up to possible be able to see exactly where its coming from any suggestions thanks is it possible that there is something wrong with the case or not likely thanks

Cooler lines, dipstick, kickdown cable grommet, pan gasket, and accumulator cover are the usual suspects.

Spray it off with brake clean, blow it off with air, and you can even use baby powder to pinpoint it quickly.
