The procedure you are performing is the correct way to check and set the fluid level. What might be your specific question on this procedure?

The fluid runs out whether it is running or not-in Park or neutral just bought it expected to get used transmission but in works intermittently

It will definitly run out when not running because the fluid level is higher. It may be overfilled. Or make sure you are using the correct fill plug. Also you want to get it warm like you are doing, engine running, in park, and the fluid should just trickle out. If it is rushing out then the trans is overfilled.
