Albo, I'd start with replacing the reservoir cap gasket first. The sucker is hardly noticeable but's it's there. I replaced the gasket in my old reservoir and the leak stopped. No need for sock mod. Before replacing the pump I'd make sure it's really the pump and not the hose ( or hose clamp) or just the ATF coming down from the reservoir cap.
Let me know.
