#1: signature. See posting rules.
#2: if you're leaking tranny fluid, find out where and post that ..... after you do #1.
#3: this problem might just be a leak.

I know overfilling isn't good, but I don't think that would prevent you from getting it in gear. Check the dipstick when the car is warm to see where the level is. When you found that it was low, was it the first time that you checked? Was it full before? If so, you're leaking somewhere. Otherwise, it could be a whole host of internal issues & if that's the case, I'm not the guy for advice.

Thanks for fixing your signature though and I'm sure that now others will chime in to offer advice. There's a great group of guys on here with knowledge on everything. Someone will be able to help you!

Find and fix any leaks, then drain and fill the trans to capacity. If it leaks down fill it with a trans stop leak/conditioner. That seems to be a taboo thing with the newer transmissions, but with six hunnys in the old thing, how can you go wrong?
Be careful not to throw good money after bad tranny.
Did the car do this all the time? Auto trannys I have had were consistent-good or bad.

He means that you need to diagnose the hell out of it because if you need a new tranny, you don't want to waste money on the dead one.
