I have a 1994 Saturn SL, and I think I overfilled the Transmission Fluid. What should I do?
I just recently started using the car (my brother's), and he said there was a small transmission fluid leak so I should check it and refill occasionally. I checked it for the first time the other day, with the engine hot and running while the car idled in park as specified in the manual, and it was low. So I bought the fluid, added much less than a pint (the manual said a pint should refill it), and now when I try to take the reading it appears that I highly highly overfilled it, the reading seems off the chart. What should I do?
There are warnings everywhere not to overfill it, so does that mean I shouldn't drive the car anymore? Do I need to have it towed? Or should I drive it to a service station? Or should I try to siphon it out myself?
Any advice would be most helpful, thanks.
