I've never seen a modern torque converter do that but the fluid coupling in my Dual Range Hydro does it all the time. They are famous for it, the check valves aren't very good. Only real fix on a Hydro is a deeper oil pan or don't let the car sit for more than a day at a time.

I'm afraid you are stuck with getting a new torque converter, but luckily good ones aren't that expensive.

Got the same problem with my B&M TH350 & high stall converter, it was all brand new about 4,000 miles ago & is a genuine B&M from Chatsworth CA, It performs good but leaks real good too.
Its my next job before the locker in the rear end!

Got the same trouble on a 700r4 with rebuilt aftermarket converter. :o Thought it might be a pinhole in one of the welds. Will leak if left sitting for more than a couple of days, and the tranny dipstick shows way overfull. Start it up put it in all the gears, and it shows normal. Have an aftermarket pan also, with a stock dipstick. Could I be filling it too full?? Let us know what you find, maybe there are others out there with the same problem.

Tird blow 350's will wear the drum that the front pump fits intowhere the sealing rings seal the pump to the drum and they will have a converter drain back problem. I see it alot and replace alot of these drums on rebuilds. These tranies used to be cheap to rebuild but they are getting to the point that they are just worn out from being rebuilt too many times. Then the days of getting good cores for parts for 20.00 are over. So watch those lowball guys, you get what you pay for. There is probably nothing wrong with the convertor.

I would hate to think that b&m would miss something like this but anything is possable.

Just a little info... if you have a chevy transmission... you are never supposed to check the fluid when the car is off. You will always get a fake reading. Drive the car a mile or so then pull over and check the fluid with the car STILL RUNNING.
