1995 f150

Okay so as some of you know ive been looking at a 1995 f150 351w automatic. I went and looked at it today in person, the guy says the trans is bad but im not to sure. From what i was told he was driving it for awhile and nothing seemed wrong with the truck. Then for a week it was kinda skipping in reverse, and one day trans fluid leaked everywhere on the ground, it still is leaking actually. Although he said he drove it off the back of the tow truck so it still moves. Unfortunately he took the drive shaft out but from what i could see it leaking from the inspection cover or around that area. The truck has 150k on it. Just want some possible causes, i honestly believe he blew a seal and the fluid leaked everywhere.
Thanks for the help.

E4OD trans are good for around 160,000 miles so it probably is going out.

Sounds like it was severely overheated. Could be from the vent tube on the top of the trans as well. Either way, the pan needs to be dropped and the fluid and filter changed. The fluid and filter a no good anymore. Don't put a rebuild past it. It could very well need one. I have 195k+ on my original E4OD, but it is been on borrowed time for awhile now. Hasn't given me any real signs of dying yet. But if it does go out, I'll get it fixed and updated and be on my way.

I didnt think of that, the fluid doesnt smell burnt and looks bright red as normal. Im thinking Either Bad torque converter seal, front pump seal, or the dip stick because the fluid appears to be coming from the inspection plate to down the trans pan and dripping, from the symptoms I dont believe it to be bad. Any recommendations on were to start I was gonna check the dipstick and Remove the inspection plate to take quick look.

Okay So just got the truck home! I locked the hubs, put it in 4x4 high cuz the rear drive shaft is out, and put the truck in drive there was no movement. However i forgot to take it out of 4x4 and i put in park and it start grinding like your shifting without a clutch in a standard. I turned it off put in 2 high unlocked the hubs started it in netural still grinding did the samething with 4x4 in neutral still grinding noise. I didnt add any fluid by the way which i know stupid, so any thoughts.
