With my truck turned off the dipstick reads over full. I start it and run it and then check the fluid level while running and it reads empty on the dipstick. I keep pouring in fluid and I can here a sound in the dipstick hole that sounds like a quiet garbage disposal sucking down the fluid. But will not read on the dipstick while running. Apparently I put to much fluid in it now. Because It started burning smoke out the exhaust as I put the last quart of transmission fluid in. Now with the truck off it reads way up towards the top of the stick. But when running it reads empty still. I need help quickly.
I am loosing transmission fluid out the exhaust pipe. on 1999 Land Rover Discovery

check tranny fluid by idling in neutral(not in park, or engine off). sounds like you blew a seal by over filling it. get it to a tranny shop for diagnostic run. tranny tech. will advise.
