Transmission problem
2005 Ford Expedition Four Wheel Drive Automatic 46000 miles

I took my ford in to get an oil change. During the check he said I was a quart and a half low on transmission fluid. I bought two quarts went home to add. I started to the truck to double check and yes I did need to add. I poured the first one in and let run and checked the stick again. Now I am over into the do not add line. I heard that if you go past the hot line this could be bad. Is this true? And if so how bad and what should my next step be?
Do you

Hi:
You shouldn't over fill it. How far over full is it? Also, I believe there is a drain plug on the trans pan on the expedition if you need to drain a little. Also, where I work, we use a pump to drain as much as we can through the fill tube so it's less likely to make a mess when removing the pan.

Let me know if this helps, and how much over full you are.
