United manager Simon Grayson was forced into making one change to his starting line-up with Shane Higgs making his first start of the season in place of Kasper Schmeichel, who has sustained a foot injury. Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Jason Brown joined on a hush-hush loan deal to take his place on the bench.
Grayson had preached patience before the game, citing Swansea's style of possession football, but it was Leeds who started on the front foot and Luciano Becchio fired wide early on as United carved out the first chance.
Neil Kilkenny also headed a Bradley Johnson cross over the top following more good build-up play.
But United were behind on 13 minutes. Richard Naylor mis-judged a long ball forward and Stephen Dobbie capitalised to slide the ball across an advancing Higgs and into the far corner.
And Higgs came to the rescue moments later when he denied Scott Sinclair after David Cotterill played a defence-splitting ball that gave his team-mate a great chance to double the advantage.
As Leeds responded, Dorus De Vries totally missed a cross in the box and Alan Tate had to scramble clear under pressure from Johnson.
Despite trailing, Leeds were enjoying all the ball, and Neill Collins was the next to try his luck when he saw a goalbound header blocked by a defender.
The problem for United was that on the rare occasions Swansea saw the ball during the opening exhanges, they looked dangerous. Higgs was called upon again on the half-hour to save well when a Nathan Dyer shot took a deflection off Naylor.
Leeds again responded by carving out a good opening, Becchio being denied by Garry Monk, but it was Higgs who made another good save on the stroke of half-time when he was at full-stretch to turn a Dobbie shot around the post.
Yet there was still time for United to be denied by the woodwork when Johnson rattled the bar from distance with a powerful strike which had De Vries beaten.
Swansea started the second half with a couple of early raids, but United were back on level terms 55 minutes. Max Gradel supplied the cross from the right, Naylor's header was saved on the line, but Johnson was on hand to smash home the rebound.
And United were 2-1 up within eight minutes. Gradel was again the intitial provider, Sam had a shot saved, and Kilkenny's follow-up was deflected off Jonny Howson, but Becchio was on hand to hammer the ball home from close range.
It was an amazing turnaround and with emotions running high, in the wake of the second goal, Becchio and Swansea goalkeeper De Vries clashed with the visiting stopper hurling a ball at the head of the Leeds striker.
Swansea were suddenly playing catch-up and they looked to attack Leeds with some good passing football as the game headed into the final quarter-hour.
The visitors had more of the ball than Leeds, but Grayson's side were defending well as they looked to close the game out.
United were putting in a professional performance as the game entered the five minutes of time which were added on, and Grayson's men almost added a third goal when Ross McCormack's header was collected by De Vries.
The win was enough to keep United among the early pace-setters in the Championship and it was the first time since Christmas 2005/06 that the club has recorded three successive victories in the second tier.
