Use a suction gun with a long hose to remove the excess.

Are you checking the fluid correctly? Engine warm , on a level surface, in park. Remove the dipstick, wipe, reinsert. Look at both sides of the dipstick, the lower side is the level.

Yes's also recommended to cycle through the gears prior to checking ...just didn't have a suction gun on hand..went to the store and bought a turkey Baster Thank y'all so much
