Transmission Problem? a4ld

We im going to shorten the story up and try to give enough info on my problem.

I went wheeling this weekend in the Bronco II Auto trans had a driveshaft problem cv slip joint/slip yoke went out on both ends so I had to to take the rear driveshaft out to try to make it home. I drove in 4x4 high and front driveshaft only for prob about 70 miles then i start to pour trans fluid and drivetrain power (trans) So i pull over and notice its pouring out of the front of the trans were it connects to the engine. I refill it and it just continues to pour out. So I had to get trailered home later that night, so do yal think I have done something to the trans or was it over heating because i was in 4x4 high and no rear driveshaft?

Thanks for the help in advance

It sounds like you overheated the transmission. Fluid can be forced past the seals if the trans gets hot enough. It might stop leaking once it cools off, but even if it does there may be other damage from overheating it.

At this point I'd change the fluid, keep an eye on the condition of the fluid, check for leaks, and hope for the best.
