Tranny leaking fluid

So I just got a new transmission installed and its leaking at a pretty good rate, its been almost a week since i have had it back. At first I thought it was just cause it was over filled. but now its still doing it. I went under there and tightened the pan as much as i could but couldn't get it to move any tighter.

You guys think I should wait longer or take it back??

I would wait maybe a little longer. Just keep watching your gauges and making mental notes of it.

Are you shure the pan is leaking? I had one that leaked fron the dipstick tube @the case. It made it look like the pan.

Well the dip stick isn't anywhere near low its in the middle now so im gonna keep watching it, but ill tighten down on the trans temp sender plug, it just freaks me out that they didn't use any silicone sealant since the manual says its not needed.

Yea I dunno what it is, Im gonna have to borrow a TQ wrench from work to check the fittings, then use some 409 or break cleaner to clean it all off so it doesn't have an oily film and see if I can find it easier.
