LEAK IN TRANNY

1995 SAAB 9000

Transmission problem
1995 Saab 9000 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles

I have a 95 Saab 9000 turbo with an auto tranny. The other day, the car was driving normally. I stopped and it would not move. I checked the disptick, and it showed the tranny dry. I had it towed to an auto parts store and put 3 quarts in it, and it ran back out. I have the car up on ramps and can see the fluid coming down from behind a vertical protector plate at the lowest point of the transmission, but can't see the actual leak. Is this something that I may be able to delve into and fix myself, or might this be a " car killer" repair?
Thanks!
