After i checked my fluid levels yesterday before setting out, i didn't put the trans dipstick all the way back in, would this cause the fluid to be in my driveway, a little in the engine bay and that burning trans fluid smell after it gets warmed up? [i already put it back in correctly but have not driven it yet, and no visible leaks under the car while it's in gear]

It's not overfull, in fact i can't get it to stay on the damn stick, i had my emissions done yesterday [failed: OBD2 not ready] afterwards i added 2 quarts and i still couldn't get it to the hash mark. I had this much fluid come out before putting 2 gallons in it during repairs: all fluid in the trans pan, let it drip for a couple days, and I accidentally ran the engine with trans pan still off [that put fluid on the ground but not that much maybe a quart]. How much fluid could it possibly hold? :angry:

P.S.: Now it's raining so i can't tell if it left a new trail of fluid out of the driveway
