Yeah,sounds like vapor lock.Common problem.Best way is to take the sight tube loose back by the rear end.
That will allow it to vent and fill up.Just be careful not to overfill it or it goes all over the floor.
Best to have 2 folks when doing it this way.One to pour,one to watch or put a drip pan back there.

If you've done this before,then you know it's a very slow process............correct?
I would check the plastic 90 degree elbow that is threaded into the trans from the fill tube. It has a vent hole. If that is plugged you will get the "air lock" deal.
If you have to try AJ's method,make sure to remove the plastic hose from the TOP of the sight glass.
That way you will still be able to see the fluid rising and catch it in time.:)
