Default squirtin trans fluid like crazy?

my auto trans has killed a front trans seal once and dumped trans fluid like crazy, have replaced the front seal, and now, 3 months later pisses trans fluid like crazy again, get a puddle the size of a softball everytime i park it. when i did replace this seal it would squirt like crazy from the overflow. dipstick reads good yet its still leaking, from both the overflow and appears to be the front seal again, a friend said the torque converter may have been overheated and thats why its pissin out the overflow, and if the front seal went out again could it be from that OR could it be the pump has too much play? any insight would be greatly appreciated

Could be that the seal was improperly installed and eventually popped right back out.

Did you ever find out the cause of the problem? my truck seems to be doing the same exact thing, i replaced the front seal months ago and now its pumping fluid out the overflow.
