Tranny was fine going down the road. After stopping and starting to take off from a stop sign, fluid began blowing out the fill tube! Tranny was just rebuilt a little over a year ago.

Transmission overheated, was the cooler cleaned when the trans was rebuilt? It may be clogged, if you do anyki dog hauling or towing you might consider getting a GOOD transmission cooler maybe one with a fan on it, then bypass the one in the radiator altogether.

I was not hauling anything! yes, the fluid was cool when they rebuilt the tranny.
