Unhappy ATF Leak

Posted earlier about a transmission oil leak. Dug into today and found that the oil is dripping away form a steel tube right under the right radiator fan. I filled her up nice and high today, but i was wondering if there is any treatment(*) that can either slow down or even stop transmission leaks? If so what brand you do guys recommend?

Thanks.

If it'* teh fitting, you can pull it and clean it. Otherwise you will need to replace that tube. Keep in mind that pulling the fitting could break the tube.

Yea it might be coming from the upper part of the fitting (right hand side) where its leaking from.. Im just gonna degrease that area, wipe it dry and use the puddy that turns to cement and patch her up, ill also add a little of lucas transmission fix since it states "will stop leaks" (yea we'll see) .
It only leaks when the motor is running.
