Leak at bell housing and surge, Convertor?

Driving down the highway today outside temp was 110 degrees and the truck started surging some. it is not turbo surge i have a housing on my turbo. it was different than turbo surge then when i arrived to where i was going i saw a steam of fluid leading to my truck, i looked underneath and the was fluid coming from the bell housing in a fairly stead stream, temps where running about 170-180 on my trans temp gauge on the way down. let it sit about 45 mins then started back home stopped about every 30 miles to check the leak and the level in the trans, there was only a slight drip at best temps ran 160-170 all the way back. and no surge to be felt. I read a thread on 2000 models having a temp issue, mine is an 01. So my question is this the start of the converter going out or what is it?

tq converter failed. it has a plug or check valve on it that will pop out if it fails. this happened to my dads. did it act weird for any length of time before the fluid leak?

Nope never acted up really just kinda felt a slight surge. Been driving the truck a week almost now. No more leak, no temp issues and no shifting issues. Just has me worried convertor is coming apart possibly. Rpm's seem normal as well. Been trying to get ahold of bts this last week but didn't have any luck. Also been looking for a 6.0 cooler as well if it is temp related.

That is really weird man. No harsh shifts or flashing OD light?

Nope none at all that is why I am so stumped. But want to catch whatever it is before it craters if possibly.
