    85 auto TV transmission fluid coming out of the dipstick

    So I bought my first Toyota van about a month or so ago. And had been driving it every day for a couple weeks. And then noticed the transmission fluid burping out of the dip stick tube. Shortly after my trans started having low fluid symptoms. Since then I have changed the filter and pan gasket and re filed the trans with fluid. And I am still having the problem. Anyone had this problem It still shifts and runs like normal when the transmission has fluid in it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    When does it burp fluid out? moving or idling? in gear or in park/neutral? As soon as you start the engine or only after it gets warm driving a while?

    Typically auto transmissions have a vent near the top. Depending on the style, sometimes insects will nest in them and plug them up.
