Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy
They did not ventilate the transmission very well Extremely common issue on 1996-2002 jimys and blazers. Its nothing to really worry about just one of those quirks.

SOURCE: the transmission dipstick length
Any transmission repair shop can get that part from hundreds of
wholesale supply houses they get their parts from
There are people that sell only hard parts or used internal parts
They have the dipstick
Salvage Yards have them
Dealers can check from old stock around the country etc
You can order on the internet fron one of the trans suppliers,
in the US at least

you have way too much fluid in trans !!!!!!!!!!!! remove trans pan, drain out fluid, replace gasket and filter, put in (4 quarts) fluid. MAYBE ! DONOT OVERFILL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DONOT DRIVE UNTIL YOU DO THIS !!! NOW, START ENGINE, LET IT WARM UP, CHECK FLUID LEVEL, IF ITS TOUCHING THE DIPSTICK TAKE VAN FOR A SHORT RIDE, AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD, (5-10) MINUTES, THEN , WHILE ON THE LEVEL, RECHECK FLUID LEVEL, 3 TIMES, WIPING OFF THE STICK EACH TIME, YOU WANT TO SEE THE FLUID LEVEL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE "HOT" CROSSHATCHED AREA OF DIPSTICK ! IF THATS WHERE IT IS, CONGRADULATE YOURSELF, YOU ACTUALLY DID IT RIGHT !!! LEAVE IT ALONE, GO ON YOUR WAY. NOW, IF YOU NEED TO ADD FLUID, USE YOUR FUNNEL, ADD ONLY A SHOT GLASS @ A TIME ! DO YOU HEAR ME ????? A SHOT GLASS @ A TIME, NO MORE, NO LESS. EVERYTIME YOU PULL DIP STICK OUT, WIPE IT OFF, WIPE IT OFF, WIPE IT OFF !!! MAKE SURE YOU RESEAT STICK ALL THE WAY IN ! REMEMBER, THE ENGINE MUST BE @ NORMAL RUNNING TEMPERATURE, WITH GEAR SHIFT IN PARK, ENGINE RUNNING !
