  1. So I took it apart again. I did as you said and found the breather with a mirror. It was dirty, but dry. There was no fluid up there. I took a paper towel and wiped it clean, then thumped it a couple times with my finger to make sure it could move freely. I also filled it to exact capacity after letting it drain for about 45 minutes. I measured 2.9L and filled it up. I think gave it one more pump from the fluid, which caused it to start leaking out the fill plug. I let it sit for ~30 minutes until it completely stopped, and closed it up. The leak is still there. At this point I think I'

I then refilled the transmission and the leak has not gone away. I figured I screwed up on the seal, and replaced it a second time just to make sure I hadn't lost the tension spring or whatever but that didn't do anything. My next thought is that it was probably overfilled. The book states 2.9l, b
