Are you asking if there is an overflow? There is no overflow for the transmission. If you transmission is over full you will need to drain it before it does serious damage to you transmission. To do that you will need a socket to fit the Transmission pan bolts, a new Transmission pan seal, a tube of forma gasket. Remove the bolts and break the pan loose by lightly tapping it. It is best to remove the bolts 3/4 of the way out then with a catch pan under the transmission break the pan free at one end and allow the fluid to drain. If you totally remove the bolts and then break it free the pan has a tendency of falling down and getting oil all over. Once the fluid is drain clean off the old seal, dry both surfaces. Apply a thin bead of RTV to the Transmission pan edge wherethe seal will go, carefully place the seal in place aligning the holes for the bolts then carefully lift the pan into place and install the bolts. In most cases these bolts should be torqued to about 30lbs max. Typically, if you see the seal starting to bulge out at the bolts you have them tight enough. You don't want a large portion of the seal squeezing out and the RTV compund is not an indicator. Once the pan is in place properly you can fill the transmission with the proper fluid. Start by adding half the capacity of teh transmission then start the motor and check the level with it in park and add fuid till it is at the proper level. While parked go to each gear on your selector and sit in each gear for about 5 minutes after you get back to park re-check your fluid level and top off as needed.

1995 saturn! new water pump, and coolant. Changed alternator, and battery, changed oil, oil filter. noticed oily substance in overflow container. did a radiator flush, still has red, rusty color somet


Coolant is oil based. The oily mess in the overflow could be very old coolant. Or it could be engine oil from a leaking head gasket.
The rusty stuff on the floor inside the car could be from a leaking heater core.

Where do you check the transmission fluid?


PERFORM AN ELIMINATION OF ENGINE FLIUD CONTAINERS TO ACQUIRE THE TRANSMISION CHAMBER

The vehicle should only have an engine oil compartment, radiation compartment for antifreeze/ water, power steering fliuds, a water wiper blade spray dispenser compartment, and finally the transmittion fliud container area all situted within the engine entrapment area. Usually, opening the engine for the first time would require observing the fliud compartments that are identifyable from the remaining engine chambers. Observing closely on the fliud container should have written descriptions of what is expected within compartment. For example, the water fliud containers for wiper blades would usually have written lables as wiper blade fliud container, radiantion container would usually have the antifreeze demarkation logos visibly observable when engine is opened. Rely by elimination methods to ascertain the transmission fliud compartment. For example, once antifreze container, wiper water container, engine oild container, power steering fliud containers have been identified, the most like only remaining in the engine would be the transmition fliud compartment. Alternately, every fliud container within the vehicle engine is situated at separate areas. For example, the only fliud container closest to the transmittion chamber is the engine oil compartment. The vehicles usually require more engine oil than transmission fliud. Between both fliud containers, the smallest chamber for fliud oil is usually for transmission perposes in the absence of hydraulic fliud compartments with newer vehicles.

I found some oil linkages around the fuel pump is that from the pump its self or gasket


Usually observing the dripped fluid on the ground as first encounter to acquire if is gasoline leak or oil leakage. A gasoline leakage should have been caused due to overpump at the gas station. Second, a leak from the engine if is antifreeze overflow because of over filling the hydrant with water causes overflow when AC is turned on for the first time. Third, the engine oil would dispense when too much was put in container. The reason is as vehicle precaustion, else the car would not start due to too much oil lubricant. Perform a vehicles fliud levels inpsection to acquire if any require refill due to the leakage. Alternatively, if any requires reducing for example, a mechanic would determine how to dispense the old fliuds in replacement of new oils. The vehicle should perform better. Usually changing fliuds causes efffecient engine performance,least heating, AC cooling capacity, and least polutant generation like air or gasoline leakages.
