Transmission Help

I have a 76CJ7 that the transmission fluid will come out of the dip stick when cranking some times and if i drive a while seems like it boils out through the same tube.

The OIL DIPSTICK????

Manual or automatic tranny?

Why do you think it's tranny juice coming out?

76 CJ7 with an auto would have a turbo 400.
I would suspect one of two things. Either the vent tube is blocked or the transmission is overfull.
houstoniancj and mudbfun like this.

You are checking the fluid level when it is hot, right? You might also inspect your transmission cooler lines to make sure one isn't damaged and causing a blockage.

Check the vent tube first for dirt daubers nest or anything like that. Its on the top right side looking down from above, super easy to get to with the shifter cover removed.



IF all good with the vent,



I would recommend a drain and refill. Typically an auto transmission barfing fluid is from an overfill.



Just remember to refill until it just hits the dipstick then let it warm up and check the fluid level on level ground with the engine running as you do your final fill.

There is also a procedure.
Idling hot:
Set the parking brake.
Starting in park, run through each gear slowly, all the way down to low, then back to neutral. Check the level there.
