Did you check the tranmission fluid with the car warmed up and the engine running? If not, it will appear to be overfilled. Check the owner's manual for the procedure. I am not aware of vents in the transmission that could let water in unless the fill tube got covered but I am ignorant of the details of an automatic transmission design. Good luck, Jim
