    Overheating of the transmission fluid will cause it to expand and be pushed out of the overflow tube. If the transmission was a bit overfull to start with that will worsen the problem. The loss of reverse may have caused the transmission to slip and the fluid to overheat. No mater what the outside temperature is a slipping transmission can overheat the internal fluid. The transmission fluid cooler should also be checked for proper operation.

    How do you fix that problem? I have a 98 explorer and my reverse does not work. Any suggestions!
