WHY DOES MY TRANSMISSION LEAK OUT OF THE FRONT??

I rebuilt my engine and swapped the transmission, replaced the front pump seal and torque converter out of a 98 cherokee. Worked great for 7 months then out of nowhere it sprayed fluid everywhere and smoked bad. What could cause this to keep happening and how can I fix it cheaply and effectively?

From where at the radiator or at the front of the transmission if so check the pump seal

I replaced the front pump seal 7 months ago. What could cause it to go out in such a short time?

Its hard to say-you need to open it up again and investigate the cause-
