Well.....got the fluid changed and all sealed back up. I used PTFE tape on both the fill plug and the catch can hose fitting. After a few lengthy test drives, she is tight as a drum!!

Funny thing is the original leak problem wasn't either one of those. Apparently one of the screws from the diff mounting access panel in the trunk punctured the catch can hose. It of course slowly leaked down on the hose fitting then down on the fill plug........ once I pulled the catch can hose/fitting to clean it and add the tape I found culprit when the hose wouldn't move : )

Thanks for all the help.
