My AOD spews fluid out the dipstick when I shut it off. The fluid falls right on the hot manifold and catches fire. Somebody throw me a bone here and clue me in as to what the hell is wrong with this thing. I had to do the 50 yard dash with my lunch bowl full of creek water this afternoon.:whiteflag

sounds like you really heating up the trans fluid, once that happens it will expand and head to the easiest out, which is the dipstick tube, think about adding a trans filter and bigger cooler, and a locking dipstick. Becareful we had one of the pirate members loose his rig due to a fire starting from trans fluid.

It that is the case its heating up fast. I have put the dang thing out 2 times today. It happened at 3pm today when I rode to the store when I took my break. Its just a few blocks from the store and back. When I got back it caught on fire. Burnt up a few of my vacuum hoses too.
