Would an overfilled trans ....
... the answer is:
The car had been sitting for over a year. It looks like the ATF "drained back" into the trans.
Got the car running and then checked the AFT level-it needed 3 quarts.
When I first got it running the trans would not engage in reverse or any of the forward speeds. I started adding ATF and soon I got gears. Car is now running and shifting well.
-no it wasn't overfilled, the ATF had simply drained into the trans (car was parked on a slightly sloping driveway)
-The car needed ATF
-The car shifts well after a final adding of fluid once warm
My friends think I am a hero. Nice.
