Why does fluid come out the trany dipstick

Asked by Aug 11, 2015 at 07:38 PM about the 2001 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: General

I got this 2 years ago as a Tow Away when I had my tow service, it's been stored at my brother's shop since. We pulled it out a month ago & have been doing some little repairs, brakes, oil change, etc. No trany service yet. When my brother went to move it last week ( he let run for about 10 minutes ) it spewed fluid out the trany dipstick about 1/2 cup he said, we'd like to know why. He's only seen this one other time in his 40 years working on vehicles. We've driven the car about 50 miles to help set the brake pads & shoes, then parked it. Why did it do this ? His mechanic friends not worry it's a Ford thing. Any help would be appreciated.

Never seen that before lol maybe overkill on fluid)

I went to a lot of sites yesterday & a lot of them said try the vent on top of the trany.
