It is possibly over filled. If not the o ring (seal) on dipstick tube may need to be replaced. Check those two things and see if either one is causing the problem.

Transmission oil coming out the funnel


If you mean it is coming out of the fill/dipstick tube, then quit driving this car. You will trash the transmission, if it hasn't already happened. Usually when this happens the transmission cooler inside the radiator has busted, and is pumping coolant into the transmission. Then again I have seen some people just overfill it to the extreme. But either way it needs to be checked. This involves dropping the transmission oil pan.

Where do you pour transmission fluid in for 1998 Chevy Blazer


There's a red handled dip stick located on the rear of passenger's side of the engine, this is the place you put in the fluid and check the level. A small long necked funnel helps, be carful not to overfill it as doing so may cause a major leak from over pressurization.

Where do you put the transmission fluid on a 2008 Kia Spectra?


Locate the transmission dipstick. To add transmission fluid, simply remove the dipstick and insert a funnel in tube, then slowly add fluid. Do not overfill, as this will cause the transmission to slip and possibly cause damage.

Where do i pour transmission fluid


Always check the transmission fluid with the engine hot (after driving) and while the car is idling and in park.

Pour the transmission fluid, using a funnel, into the tube where the transmission dipstick is. The dipstick handle is usually the RED one.

Do not overfill the transmission fluid, as this could cause it to come out into the engine compartment thru the filler/dipstick tube when it becomes hot and potentially catch on fire.

Good luck

Where do is the tranny fluid filler on my '99 Legacy Outback? Please don't tell me I have to pour 9.8 qts down the dipstick tube!


yes you do but if you only removed filter and fluid in the pan it should only be around 5 quarts. also make sure you use the right dipstick located on right side of the engine because there is one on the left side for the transfer case which takes gear lube. might want to purchase a transmission funnel makes it easier.

Honda accord lx 1996 6 transmission dipstick


For the V-6 model, the dipstick is located down low on the transaxle, on the drivers side of the car, if it is low, usually 1 pint of of fluid is needed to raise from low notch to high notch. also if it appears to be dark or burnt, smells burnt, you should replace the tranaxle fluid. Good Luck!

Low transmission fluid


Easy....you have to get under the car and remove the filler plug ABOVE the drain plug. You fill it till it comes out of that hole. You have what is called a closed cased transmission. Filling your transmission is very similar to filling a rear differential case.

Hope this helps!
