The tranny fluid is probably low. Check the level after the vehicle has been
sitting long enough for the bubbles to go away. If it's low, add some. When
the tranny is cold the fluid should still register on the dip stick just
fine. Be sure that when rechecking the tranny is warmed up, the vehicle is
on a flat/level surface, and you run the shift lever through all the gears
(PRND21). Other than that, follow the instructions in your manual.

Last week when I got the truck the trans fluid level appeared to be
about 2 inches above the full mark. It had a lot of bubbles in it
then. I syphoned over a pint and got it down to slightly above the
full mark. However, it still had bubbles and was difficult to read.
I had my wife take it to a dealer and have it checked. At first, he
thought I had syphoned too much. After checking it 3-4 times he
concluded it was probably ok. However, it still has bubbles. Are you
saying that the bubbles are significant that it is low and will cause
the level to be inaccurate? Thanks for the response. Any further
advice will be appreciated.

I have a '95 with the same tranny, a 4L60E automatic. When cold, and the
engine NOT running, the level is 2 3/4 inches above the full (HOT) mark.
Remember, this is in the morning, level ground, and engine not running.
From your post, it seems like it was overfilled if in fact it was 2 inches
above full when running. This will definitely cause foaming in the
