Trans fluid blowout everywhere

Brothers 2000 powerstroke was driving about 70 down the highway going only ten minutes away and just dumped trans fluid completely dry out of the flywheel housing. He didn't realize until he went to leave and had no gears but the fluid is everywhere so it had to happen while moving. Anyone have any ideas what happened? It's only had a banks tuner on it and not run hard at all and it was supposedly just rebuilt trans right before he bought it. Any ideas are appreciated

That trans was good for blowing out front seal when hot, may need new seal.
Check trans cooler is clean & big enough. Do trans lines go to radiator, some recomend just running to trans cooler only & larger cooler, stock ones are too small. Run AMSOIL trans fluid will run about 20 degrees cooler.
Have a Bronco plow truck that did this would stop leaking after it would cool down, put in larger cooler & AMSOIL trans fluid hasn't happened since. That was 4 years ago, that reminds me need to change fluid on it.

sounds like the front torque converter seal...pain in the *** kinda. but cheap and easy....drop the trans. remove the TC, replace the seal with the new one (mine was $7.50 at the auto parts store). put all back in and go!

we dropped the trans wiped down the tc and didnt see anything wrong with that so started checking seals but a puddle formed under the tc. turns out there was a hairline crack in it so we put a billet tc in and replaced all the seals been fine so far

Your front pump seal went.. I just replaced mine today.. It's Perty easy. Just drop the trans pull the seal off the pump clear up the area when the seal goes and put the new seal on, and put it all back together. Use a 3" PVC pipe to push it on evenly. It's a 2 person job tho..
