Checking Auto Tranny Fluid Level

Does anyone else have trouble checking the fluid level in their E40D? I have never been able to see a line that shows exactly what the level is as compared to checking the engine oil level. Fluid appears to be covering the entire indicator. I know that the dipstick has different sides for checking the fluid when cold or hot but I never see a line no matter when I check it. Ford filled it last when the toque converter seal was replaced so I would hope that the level is correct. Any tips or hints that would help me out are appreciated.

i had my trans (e40d) serviced and i have the same deal. when i check the fluid level it appears overfull, even when the vehicle is cold. i always make sure the truck is level when i check. i hope this is normal and that my mechanic did not make a mistake.
Sorry, no tips, just he same worry.

Is there a solution? An overfilled transmission can cause issues.
