Tranny spraying fluid yesterday but has recently stopped

Okay, I have a 99 F-250 Powerstroke, I believe an early 99. It has been making a growling sound from the torque converter ever since I bought it a year ago, but it drove fine so I did not replace it. I was hauling a tractor up town yesterday and when I got to my destination I noticed that there was fluid dripping from my transmission and rear end. It was all tranny fluid that had sprayed to the rear of the truck. I procceded to drive it home and it drove and shifted fine. I let it sit for awhile and put a sheet of plywood under the truck to see if it would leak anymore and it did just a little, I think this was just drops from the previous event. I checked the fluid and it is a little difficult to tell on these dip sticks but it didn't look very low but I added a quart just cause there was fluid all over the underneith of my truck. I drove it again today and have not had any problems yet any ideas what might be going on? Could the fluid have came from my torque converter? The vent hole? ( I'm not sure where it is located) I just don't want to get it replaced if it is not shot or have it go out due to a simple issue. Any help would be appreciated.

Could be something as simple as a clogged vent line. What you really need is a temp gauge for the trans so you can see how hot it getting. How did the fluid on the dip stick look, was it bright red or dark and burned looking?

The fluid was bright red. Where is the vent line and how would you recommend checking it? As far as installing a temp gauge is there a spot for it?
