Maybe the breather valve is obstructed (pinched) causing the pressure to build and seep at the dipstick?
run it once and before it overflows , pull the dipstick and see if it is foaming up ?

Can engine oil leak into transmission on toyota corolla 1989

Sounds like you need to get your transmission serviced as the darkened color is a sign of deteroration. As for oil to somehow make it into the transmission you would need one serious oil leak and the grommet around the tranmission dipstick would have to be pretty much gone for oil to somehow make it into the housing. Needless to say I've never seen it happen.

I want to check the transmission fluild in my 2000 Jetta 5 speed and can not find the dip stick to to this. I do not have an engine manuel.

on a manual transmission there is no dip stick. it is a sealed unit. in order to check the the level there is 2 bolts on the transmission. the one is on the front side that is your full level and place to add fluid. the second is on the front but closer the bottom. this one is to drain the fluid

Hi: To Refill your Auto Transmission with Tranny Fluid, There is NO CAP, Look For a Dip Stick Similar to your Oil Dip Stick.You Refill your Transmission where the Transmission Dip Stick comes out of a Tube. You'll Need a Funnel that Fits inside the Transmission Dip Stick Tube. This Should Resolve your Question. Please Vote and That actually sends me How Well I have Helped You.

Where do you add tramission fluid

If this is a stick (manual) shift, you have to get under the truck. There is no dipstick, like in an automatic. So, on level ground, with a cooled transmission, put down some cardboard and have a rag handy. Get the bolt-type, or allen wrench-type plug out of the side of the tranmission. This is where you check or add tranny fluid. Place your finger into the hole up to the first knuckle (the one just past your fingernail). You should at least feel fluild at the tip of you finger, but close to the bottom of the threaded plug hole is what I remember. Also remember to check the clutch fluid (if it is a manual), it is up under the hood just in front of the driver, behind the brake fluid reservoir. In fact it looks like a smaller version of the brake reservoir. Maggie

I am leaking Transmission fluid as fast as I am putting it in. where are the hoses located to see if one of them is cracked.

The only "hoses" are the cooler hoses located on the front of the transmission.
Are you sure there is no leak coming from the Transmission Fluid Pan? These tend to leak first before anything.
Also is the Dip Stick/Filler Tube correctly inserted into the Transmission? Sometimes these are mistakenly taken out-of-place, and are not correctly seated, allowing new fluid to pour out.
The other place(s) to look are near and around the Solenoid (box-shaped on from of the Tranmission and around the Sensors. The Solenoid has a gasket that may be leaking. The Sensors have "O"-rings that also leak.
The best thing is to clean up any spilled fluid, jack-up and support the front of the vehicle and isolate where the fluid is comming from.

Where do I add tranmission fluid

There is a rubber plug that is actually the dip stick. You can check out you fluid level but you have to crawl under the truck and remove the plug and there is your dip stick it is only a couple of inches long. user_offline.gif quote.gif

Transmission Leak

Tal, The dipstick tube does have a cup seal that is used to seal the tube to the transmission case. They can leak, you would have to remove the bolt on the transmission bell housing, pull the tube up out of the hole and replace the seal.
The plug you refer to is for pressure testing. It is a pipe plug fitting that can be resealed with teflon tape from the hardware store.
Good luck let me know.
PS. make sure the transmission fluid level is not over full.
