Purchased used 2005 with 155,000 - exterior and interior in pristine condition. I'm a very senior single woman.  Oil stick showed a quart too much as did the transmission fluid stick

Is this why I get a puddle about 2 - 4 inches under the car?

Hi...welcome to the club

It does sound as though the fluid is as a result of being overfilled, but wonder why it was in the first place....either incorrectly filled or overfilled to compensate for a leak?

It is worth popping into a garage for an inspection as to where the fluid is leaking from and why.

Also, worth noting that some automatic transmissions need to be placed into 'Drive' with the engine running at idle to correctly check the level. Follow instructions in the handbook for correct procedure.

Cheers,  Trevor
