Hi All, I removed the tranny pan and replaced the filter. I left the original gasket as it looked in decent shape with no cracks or rips. Once I sealed everything, i filled out 2qts then started the car. at around the 4th qt i noticed the oil was not going down as fast and when i looked under the car i seen it spewing oil out of top of the pan cover. Was it coming out because a vent is there and i over filled or is the pan cover not on correctly?

Thank you in advance.

You should be using a new gasket since an old one can cause leaks as in your situation. Use a new gasket and ensure you tighten the bolts in a criss cross style.
