Car makes a puddle only when parked for over a week. If run everyday, there's no leak.

Does it make sense that this part only leaks when the car is parked longterm?

Is the converter bleeding back and raising the level up to the fitting? Reading indicates the leak is from splashing and not from bleedback.

Thanks.

No, the sleeve is much higher then the fluid level, and in a non-pressurized location.

It only leaks while driving, and while fluid is splashing, unless you are parking facing up a very steep grade. That said, due to the design of the trans casing, it isn't uncommon for the leak to hit the ground while parked, and since it is usually a slow leak, the fluid may 'sit' on the case for a while until it all drips off.

Also, if it is leaving a puddle, fix it now. A few drops can be monitored, but a substantial leak should be addressed as soon as possible, there isn't that much 'extra' fluid in there.
