I changed my fluid (drained the pan & converter, cleaned pan, replaced filter)
I ended up with a leak via 2 many re-uses of the reuseable gasket, so I had to remove the pan again & use the rubber gasket that came with the new filter.
I have over-filled the trans now about a full quart-my question is will this hurt anything? or should I drain it down to normal level?
(I am using Mercon V fluid. Thanks!!
You need to pull fluid out of it, or it will come out the overflow, and can blow various seals.
You really don't want to run it low or high.
Low fluid causes different problems, all bad.
