    Are you sure you didn't over fill.

    Also the way you phrase your question, it sounds like you are just letting us know about things. If you are a DIY person you will have to give more info for a diagnosis.

    might have over filled yes at begaining but after 300 to 500 miles had to add a qt. driving another 500 miles have checked yet put oilleak seams to be progressively getting worse think about dropping pan and checking filter or changing again.

    Park the car on a flat surface, parking brake is on and block both front wheels with a 4x4 stud.Inspect the fluid level while the car is idling and the transmission is at the neutral. The transmission fluid must be at the middle of the hot markers. Remove any excess fluid with a suction pump .

    Note: fluids are expanding when the engine is hot. Overfilled may caused the fluid to foam up and coming out of the dipstick.
