1996 2.7L 4WD Automatic. About three months ago I did a transmission fluid/filter change, I did my best to calculate in/out fluid to make sure I had about the right amount in it and also quadruple checked on the dip stick.
Well we've had our first day of 90+ degree weather here in the Bay Area and I noticed that the transmission seems to be reving fast and shifting a little slower.
I got the truck as level as possible and checked it after driving for a couple hours in the heat and the transmission oil was about .5" over the top "Hot" notch.
I was thinking that it might be a little over filled when extremely hot and the symptoms haven't manifested yet because we have a constant 70 degree weather pattern here and finally it got hot enough to cause problems.
So I just wanted to see if people thought that this might be from hot/expanded trans oil and I just need to drain 1/2qt?
