    The vent hole will allow the fliud to drain.


    Edit: Unless the vent hole was clogged up.

    My world class V8 T-5 that is in my S10 is like that. Three qts of DEX III. Three qts would put it past the top plug but that is what that tranny calls for.

    with the top hole open, chances of over filling it are nearly impossible

    Go to your local auto parts store and ask them how much fliud goes in your tranny. That way you will not over fill the tranny.

    That will or might blow out the front or back seal.

    also check on the type of oil to use.....some call for gear oil and some call for regular motor oil.
