Also, if there's other issues/seals internally that are worn, you'll probably get more fluid out.
One thing my tranny did was when you first start it up in the morning, it wouldn't want to move. I'd have to let it sit for 2 or 3 seconds in gear before it would move. That would seem to coincide with the anti-drain back valve not working, or other issues.
If you have similar symptoms, I'd say it'd be normal to get more fluid out.

Is the anti-drainback valve internal or external to the transmission?
I also had a steady trickle after draining the trans fluid and the same slight pause when going into drive or reverse.
It would be nice to replace this w/o dropping the pan.

You're suppose to warm up the trans, drive it a couple miles. park on level surface, leave the engine running, slowly cylce the gear selector from park to 1st, and then back to park. Then check the fluid level with the car STILL running.

Yes, that's how I'm checking it. I was wondering if maybe the valve you mentioned may be causing it to show so high when I turn it off.
All at's are going to read higher when shut off....it's just normal
