Thanks for the reply to that question Riley,. I have a further query on the same subject. - Are there associated dangers with running an auto-trans if it is over the fill line? (Bought in that condition from a local dealer)

Don't run it while it's overfilled. Either siphon it out of the dipstick tube or disconnect one of the cooler lines to drain a little fluid. How much is it overfilled?

Are you checking the fluid level after driving, and on level ground?
Quote:
Fluid level must be checked at normal operating temperature, 20 miles (30 km) of driving.
