Quick question, i just had my atx rebuilt, and I noticed that they didn't put the overflow tube back, its missing. Do i really need it, and will it make a difference if its not there?

Re: ATX Overflow Tube

its connected on the bottom, but the top part just sits there to let out excess fluid i guess

It's a vent, but the hose isn't really needed to vent. It is helpful in preventing crap winding up in the trans. If they didn't include it just get a small section of hose from AutoZone and a clamp.

I think he means they didn't reattach the hose to the vent port.

Can someone please instruct me on how to attach this breather tube back onto the vent exactly?

There should be a little fitting on top of the transmission, just underneath the air filter box. That’s where it goes.

What B3NN3TT said, one end connects to a small fitting on top of the ATX housing, beneath the air filter; the other end is open, originally it would have been held by a clip? on the battery tray, I think. Either way, one end connects to fitting top of ATX, the other is open to atmosphere.
