Nothing, If you over filled by a couple quarts it will blow out the air tube. If like a half quart, leave it.

What could happen is that you do terminal (deadly) damage to your transmission. Drain the fluid down to the correct level.

Can a transmission malfunction if overfilled with transmission fluid?


How Does Overfilling Cause Problems? If you overfill the transmission, you will find that the fluid may foam, and that can lead to erratic gear shifting. Other problems can include transmission damage and oil starvation.

2008 Toyota Tacoma-automatic. Transmission fluid was drained in error thinking it was oil outlet. Where does new transmission fluid go in? Manual does not provide this specific info.


Trans fluid goes in the same tube the transmission dipstick sticks into. You'll need a funnel with a narrow bottom opening (1/2" or less). Make sure you pour it in the transmission dipstick tube, and not the engine oil dipstick tube. ;)
Initially, try to add about 3/4 of the estimated amount that you accidentally drained, then slow fill the remainder while checking level at different stages.
Also, try not to overfill. Check fluid level often, with engine running, in park or neutral, as you re-fill it.

First thing I would check is transmission fluid level. The fluid should be checked with engine warm, engine running, in park and good idea to have emergency brake on. You may know this but many people check transmission with engine off and think it is overfilled. I met one a couple months. It happens.

Changed oil on my 06 2.4l sebring now misses at times and trans feels like its slipping


Most transmission problems happen right after someone touches the transmission fluid. Sometimes it is overfilled and you need to let some fluid out Check the transmission dipstick (only when the transmission is warmed up) verify that it is the right level. You may need an additive to help clean the pith-balls in the transmission so that they open and close properly. The whole thing sounds like slipping bands, ask a transmission expert about that. I don't know why it is missing unless you also got gasoline that has too much methanol... I am not an expert... Just thinking out loud

WHAT DOES THE TRANSMISSION CAP HAVE ON IT?


Transmission cap? To add fluid? If that is what you mean, there is no cap and filler tube. You use an automatic transmission fluid funnel (long and thin) and refill the fluid through the transmission's dipstick tube. Pour the fluid in slowly and check level often to avoid overfilling. Use the correct ATF specified by GM and DO NOT overfill your transmission. I hope this helps.

The Automatic Transmission Fluid is supposed to be checked with the car running so there's a chance if you added fluid you've overfilled it. Also, Ford products require Type-F transmission fluid. Using the wrong kind can adversely impact the transmission's performance as well as do damage. Re-check the fluid level with the car running (preferably after 5 minutes or so to get it warm) and see if it's been overfilled. If not, verify if you've added fluid what type you used. If you used the wrong type, you should take the car (or tow) to a service station to have the fluid changed.

Need to add tranny fluid to '99 Rodeo, but where??


CAUTION: DO NOT OVERFILL.
Overfilling will cause foaming, loss of fluid, abnormal shifting and possible damage to the transmission.
1. Park the vehicle on level ground and apply the parking brake firmly.
2. Check fluid level with engine running at idle.
NOTE: Be sure that transmission fluid temperature is below 30degrees C (86degreesF).
3. Move the selector lever through all gear ranges.
4. Move the selector lever to “Park”.
5. Let engine idle for 3 minutes and open the overfill screw (1).
6. Add released transmission fluid until it flows out over the overfill screw opening.
7. Let engine idle until a fluid temperature between 32C (90F) and 57C (135F) is reached, then close the overfill screw (1).
Torque: 38 Nm (3.9 kg·m/28 lb ft)
NOTE: To prevent fluid leaks, the overfill screw and oil drain screws gasket must be replaced each time these screws are removed.

CAUTION: Do not open overfill screw with engine stopped.
CAUTION: DO NOT CHECK FLUID LEVEL UNDER THESE CONDITIONS:
 Immediately after driving at sustained highway speeds.
 In heavy city traffic during hot weather.
 If vehicle is towing a trailer.
If the vehicle has been operated under these conditions, shut the engine off and allow the vehicle to “cool” for thirty (30) minutes. After the cool down period, restart the vehicle and continue from step 2 above.

If it's red, it's transmission fluid. Coolant would be green. Check the fluid level, don't let it get low, Chrysler minivans are prone to transmission troubles, and low fluid levels over time will ruin a a transmission. And be sure not to overfill, it's just as bad for the trans. Have the leak checked out and repaired, good luck
