Question about Ford Explorer
Yes. It can cause problems with the solenoids or other electronical problems. I would remove the drain plug and remove some fluid.
Overfilling an automatic transmission can raise the fluid level to the point where the internal moving components i.e planetary gear sets, imput and output shafts, etc. are physically immersed in the oil, which "churns" up the oil causing it to foam, and be pushed out of the case vent, filler tube, etc. Also, when the oil is "foamy" the pump picks up this mixture of air entranced oil and the transmission pressures to clutches, bands and other components drops causing erratic transmission function and slipping. The solution is to drain off the excess fluid by siphoning from the filler tube, draining off through a removed cooler line or by removing the transmission pan drain plug (if equipped), or removing the transmission pan.
