    So I have a slight transmission fluid leak by the shifters.... I wrenched the bolts down a little but they were snug enough, guessing gaskets are worn out. Anyone else had a similar issue? I am asking it because this is happening with both my Taco's.

    Replacement gaskets? Is the dealership my only avenue?

    Manual transmission?
    If that's the case, Toyota now uses an orange transaxle gasket sealer called fidg-1281 in place of any paper/cork gasket it originally used.
    I had this issue 6-1/2 years ago.
