HELP!! Transmission fluid puking out my dipstick tube!!

I have a Late 99 F250SD with 7.3 and Auto trans. Just started my truck this morning and backed it up 3 feet and I was putting on my new cold air intake and during my install i notice trans fuild on the floor.Followed it and saw it was coming from the top of dipstick tube, pulled out my dip stick and more came out! I have no leaks on my trans or cooler and never need to add trans fluid so i know it isn't from over filling it. what could be causing this?

Two things can cause this. Overfilling or a plugged vent. The vent is on top of the transmission. A leaking cooler in the radiator, if you even have one, could let coolant leak into the trans causing it to be overfilled.

Well i think i may have figured it out. The vent tube for the trans was clogged on the end. Pushed a wire through and cleaned it out and trans fluid went back to normal. anybody thinks it is something else let me know.
