84' Tranny problems

I keep getting a massive tranny spew from the tranny fittings I've replaced them twice! N it's not like I drive it hard she's lucky if she gets 20 miles a week! WTF is it it's ticking me off!! The fluid is dripping on my exhaust and making it really not safe to drive cuz it's coming in the car and it's intoxicating.
Anyone ? Desperate mustang owner looking for help

Maybe the lines are cracked where the fittings attach.

Can you get me a picture of the line and fitting disassembled so I can see what kind it is and how it is made?

I got it up let it cool down n I hosed off the bottom I checked the fittings they were clean but as I pushed up on the fluid pan I heard a whistle like if you were sucking and blowing on a straw I'm assuming there might me a whole somewhere or possibly the oil pan might be loose? Is it safe to start my car on jacks with e brake on n bricks wedge in the back tires?

Re: 84' Tranny problems

What you are hearing is probably air from the case vent at the top of the transmission. If the transmission was overfilled it may have blown some fluid out fromn there too.

So if it was full it would spew or just trickle?

If overfilled and hot it might spray out.

It's possible that you have blown an internal seal or O-ring and it is forcing fluid out of the vent.
