The tsb mentioned is referring to an internal transmission seal leaking which leads to an external transmission fluid leak, this fluid leak allows fluid to contaminate the clutch pack destroying it.
I think the engine is consuming it. Nothing coming out of the exhaust. I'm losing between 1/2 to 1 quart between changes. The service advisore says 1 quart every 1000 miles is considered within specs.
