Many times hard to find trans. leaks come from the front trans. seal being worn the leak is mainly leaking down inside the flywheel/converter area and drip down to the lowest point.
Also the trans. pan gaskets have a tendency to wear causing a leak as well as a rear seal... if you cant find it take it to a trans shop and they will add a dye to the fluid ask you to drive a few days and come back so they can put a leak detector black light on the trans. in order to find the leak. This is best done in a shop and on a lift.

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus and my transmission keeps shooting the fluid out of the dipstick area or somewhere because I smell a burning smell but hardly no transmission fluid on the ground. It has went...

there are two transmission cooling lines that go to the radiator. If you have a six cylinder it is possible that one of the lines has a hole that is spraying on to the exhaust. this would account for no leaks on the ground. When you start the car it will start to spray right away. These are metal and rubber hose lines, so if and when you find a leak it can be cut out and replaced with hose and clamps or you can get the original hose and replace all of it. Not hard to o . Let me know. Randy

I overfilled my transmission fluid on my 96 taurus gl, now it won't shift into gear. Did i blow the trasmission?

It is probable that you blew out the seals and will need your transmission repaired. You can try to slip a small hose down the dip stick tube and draw out the extra fluid, there is a slight chance that your transmission will work if you get the fluid level back down where it should be.
