Trans Fluid Fill

As I was having some shudder issues and was hard shifting into 1.2. and reverse, never on 3-5, I figured I need some tranny fluid. I found the fill plug(drivers side about half way up?) WHen i opened it, about a quart or a quart and a half came out. Is this normal? Did I open the wrong plug?

Not normal if you removed the fill plug. I would drain it and refill. You probably got water in it causing it to be over full.

Drain it completely and refill with 10-30w. Here's a write up for you.

Thinking on this more, yes the fill plug is on the drivers side about half way up.
Besides water being in your tranny, the only other thing I can think of to make it over full is someone filled it from the gear shifter plate without removing the fill plug and over filled it.
Regardless, I would still drain it entirely and see what you have.

My fill-plug is rounded off by whomever owned it before. I fill through the shifter and I find that quite appealing, but overfilling it by almost 50% is pretty hard to do as trany takes only 3.5-3.7 quarts. I would think that perhaps whomever filled the trany before did not do it on leveled surface and perhaps you did not undo the plug on a leveled surface. If there is a water in the trany, the oil will come out opaque white. Check what is in the transfer case as well.
