These measure overfull when not running; but that's not how you check them...
All of mine will be on the cold line when running in park or neutral, and shifted thru the gears until each engages.
After driving, it can be foamed slightly, so can read high.
You are supposed to let it sit for a few minutes after driving, to let any foam settle.
If it's on the cold when cold, mine will be on the hot line when hot.
After wasting one tranny with a bad driveshaft and then tailshaft bushing, I keep a close eye on fluid levels, lol.
