Hi folks. Just before last winter I had my tractor serviced at the Deere dealer and all seemed fine. I’ve put maybe 10 hours on it since. I just discovered that it is leaking transmission fluid between the rear wheels. Upon checking the level, I discovered that it is WAYYYY over filled – to the very top of the dip-stick. I am going to send it up to the dealer to have them check where the leak is coming from. I looked in the manual to see if there are any cautions about damage being done if it is overfilled. There are no warnings about that. The only thing it says is "Do not overfill transmission. Oil expands during operation and could overflow." Is there an overflow bleed valve or something whereby no damage will occur? Or can excess pressure build up in the crankcase and cause seals to fail?
I’ve learned my lesson not to trust dealers to get levels correct and always immediately check. I’ve had this happen several times with my cars. What the he## does one have to do… check all fluid levels in the parking lot before leaving? Ridiculous…
Thanks for your help.
