So, in the past, I had some transmission problems with my 85 2M6 (Automatic) and they've been "fixed" for quite some time now. I say fixed because, well, I don't really know if it's exactly fixed yet.
So today I decided to put the car to the test to see how it performs. Now I don't know all too much about cars, but I'm willing to learn so that's why I'm here, don't mock me please.
I took it down the highway and floored it, redlined lots, revved really high, not sure if that's to be expect, but I presume it is.
Got back home and put it in the garage, opened the trunk just to check things out, and I noticed it was steaming/smoking. I say steaming because I smelled it and it didn't have much of a smell to it and I figured my garage was just a little cold and the engine was hot making steam. But it also crossed my mind that something could've been burning, but it's hard for me to say. Judging from how it looked and smelled, I don't think it was smoke.
I also noticed it was mega-leaking transmission fluid. I attributed this to the old gasket on the transmission pan, but then I took the dipstick out for the transmission fluid, and the stick was covered in fluid all the way to the top. Did I majorly over-fill perhaps, or is it something more serious?
Thanks in advance, sorry if that was a stupit post, but the last thing I need is a blown engine so I'm taking every precaution.
Edit: One more thing to add, when I had it floored and it was shifting, it shifted very "jerkily" and like one after another. Almost felt like bucking.
