Hello, my name is***** and i will do my best to assist you.I am going over your story now and will reply back soon with some info,thanks!
fluid out of the vent means the trans is either over heating or overfilled. did this happen out of nowhere or after a repair?
its not likely that it would over heat if the fluid was broken down, its possible that you have another underlying issue, sometimes in rare cases the radiator would fail and leak coolant into the transmission. but then you would have excess fluid, 5 qts is not a lot for a trans. minus whats in the torque converter, are you sure its trans fluid coming out of the vent and not something else leaking on top the vent?
