Maybey I habe overfilled. I know it has to warm up to check, I understand that. What is normal after sitting long periods to have spill over If you pull dipstick and holder? Thanks Dana
The trans is drain back fluid out the torque converter. This happens when the trans sits for a long time

If it coming out of the filler tube, it sounds like the breather may be plugged since the fluid level would be so high to spill out the filler tube it's self... Normally the fluid would spill out the breather which is located lower than the top of the filler tube, unless you have cut the filler tube down to a short unit
