Im surprised it makes it slip. I overfill mine by over a quart sometimes. Guys do that on their diesels too.

Some will slip due to a foaming of the ATF caused by overfilling the Trans. I've been told its best to run a little low on ATF than overfilled due to that reason.

This is why manufactures hide the dipsticks or require a special tool now.
