I have a 1988 Ford F150 with a C6 transmission. After sitting a couple of days, transmission fluid starts to drip. The dispstick reads over filled by a couple of inches. When the truck is driven and I check the fluid hot, there is little or no fluid on the dispstick. I'm wondering what to do at this point.

The truck is parked on a level surface.

I check the tranmission level when the engine is cold (not run for a couple of days) and hot (after truck has been driven, engine running, shifted through gears as suggested)

The cold reading indicates overfilled, the hot reading has nothing on the dipstick.
