I have changed the trans filter and emptied two pans, put fluid in. The car is on a 4 post lift, level. Car running in Park , remove plug and trans fluid dribbling out.
Is it just too full and let it dribble till the level reaches bottom of bolt hole,
while running of course?
-Bring Car to operating temp by driving it
-Turn off car
-Raise and safely support vehicle
-Start the car
-Shift through all gears, about 2 seconds per position, return to park
-Remove fill plug (With car running)
-If nothing comes out, add fluid until it is at the bottom threads of the fill plug hole (Which in your case, let it leak out while running until it stops)
-Install plug, tighten to 33 ft/lbs
-Test drive, check for leaks
