Oid it's blowing fluid out the dipstick tube then the fluid is too hot, better check your tranny cooler for proper flow, if it's plugged inside the radiator you either have to,replace the radiator or bypass it with an aftermarket cooler unit. Personally I would bypass it, aftermarket coolers are much better at keeping internal tranny temps down when compaired to stock systems, in fact it is a growing trend with tranny rebuilders to have tranny coolers installed or they won't honor warranties.
