Default Transmission leaking

Hi guys,

My bonneville doesn't move in the morning until it is warmed
so, I have my bonneville check by the tranny expert.

He said there might be leaking inside of the tranny due to the worn gasket and sealing, and it will be approximately $1,200 to fix the gasket, torke converter and clutch.

Well,.. I need you guy'* advice.
How long can i drive without fixing it?

Do I have to fix it right now?
or trade with other car?

My friend recommend me the anti-leaking and conditioner, but I am wondering it would work.

What do you think?

Actually I want to keep my bonny 2 years and sell it when I come back to my home country. .. I am the graduate student and of course don't have money to fix.

Thank you for your help in advace.

is your trans fluid full and what color is it. it sounds like the converter is leaking down when it sits. possibly a sticking check ball or valve. try getting the trans flushed first. but.............. make sure that you tell them up front why you are doing it and that you will not hold them responsible if it doesnt work ok. if it is the converter leaking down, it will take awhile for the fluid to get pumped back into the converter before it will move.
hope this helped.
a trans flush might run about 70-80 bux
