300 SE whining and now leaking trans fluid

My 91 300SE started whining even in Nuetral or park. Then it started leaking trans fluid all over from the torque converter area in front of the transmission. Any ideas what's going on. How does the converter get it's oil?
Thanks in advance

The transmission's pump fills the torque converter.
If oil is leaking / pouring out it's too late for anything but a tow to the transmission shop.
