If you have the 01M Transmission, you can remove the level checking plug from rear of trans oil pan. There is a overflow tube inside the plug hole, remove the overflow tube from inside the plug hole. Let ATF fluid drain. re-install the overflow tube. The filler tube is located above the front of oil pan and has a plastic cap.Pry the plastic cap off with a screwdriver, removing plug from the filler pipe. Refill 3.2 Qts., Full refill(dry) 5.9 Qts.
A lot of newer transmissions do not have dipsticks or fill tubes (I don't know of a transmission with an overflow tube). The transmissions are considered sealed units and are not serviceable...at least not by you or me. Talk to your dealer.
It is important to keep fluids from leaking from a car. Excessive transmission fluid would be coming out of the overflow because there is too much fluid in the transmission, or because the seal has become worn.
In the dip stick tube .

NO. You must drain it out to the correct level. To much fluid will damage the transmission before it pushes the fluid out of the vent tube.
Transmission fluid is usually added through the dipstick tube.
down the dipstick tube
look for a filler tube coming from the transmission on the passenger side
For automatic transmission: remove transmission dipstick, put fluid in dipstick tube with funnel. be careful not to overfill.
Down the dipstick tube.
The overflow tube is clogged is my first guess, unless someone or something has cracked the drain tube with activity in the area.
Down the tube that holds the trans dipstick. You need a special funnel that fits in the tube, cheap in Walmart.

Take drain plug out from bottom of pan. Fill thru the vent tube until fluid comes out of the drain.

Are you asking because your transmission fluid leaked when warm and doesn't show any more signs of leaks???
you pour the oil right into the tube that the transmission dipstick came out of. Use a funnel, watch the amount trans fluid that you our into the funnel it will overflow and make a mess. Good Luck DAHouse
if your water/antifreeze gets to hot it pushes out the over flow tube into the overflow container, as it cools down it will suck it out of the overflow and back into the radiator.
That device is called the refill tube. This allows water to go down the overflow tube to refill the water closet bowl while the tank is filling.
I dont think there is one. the level of fluid is regulated by filling at the upper plug until it flows out. The lower plug is for draining.
You wouldn't want to do that because starting with the 2002 model Ford Explorer ( four door ) there is no automatic transmission fluid dipstick / dipstick tube that would allow you to put in automatic transmission fluid at home
