"+1 on checking the transmission fluid when the car is running, at operating temp, and in neutral.
Common mistake for people to check it cold and engine off. Yes, it's pints, not quarts, on the dipstick.
As for being hesitant…"
Are you checking the trans fluid with the car at operating temp and running at idle —as you should ?
The trans dip stick is marked in pints —not quarts
If the trans is leaking fluid from the front of the trans it SB the…"
I have a 1963 Jetaway 315 4 speed Hydramatic that when it is parked for a few days the dipstick shows it is way overfull .

My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored.
