Question about 1970 AMC AMX
After sitting the fluid level rises in the trans. then when started the fluid comes out the vent and dip stick tube
Without more information it simply sounds as though your transmission has way too much fluid in it. Normally if you pull the dipstick while cold and the motor is off it will be low on the stick. When running and warmed up (the normal way to check the level) the level will have risen. If you filled it to the line while cold and turned off there is no doubt the transmission is over-full. In that case you don't really want to drive it. I have yet to hear of a manufacturer that didn't warn against such action. Perhaps you could get someone who is knowledgable to drop by and drain your transmission then fill it properly?
