That is what I was hoping you would say. You know, Turbo transmissions are famous for leaking when they sit. The torque converters bleed down which over fills the pan and then they begin to weep out the shift lever seal etc. I wonder if the earlier transmissions may do something similar. Driving the car may be the best thing you can do for it.
