Does a transmission have a vent?
The vent is used by the transmission so it will not build up internal pressure and push oil out of any seals.
Why is transmission fluid coming out the vent tube?
If a pump can suck in air past a filter seal or anywhere between the filter and pump, this unwanted additional air intake will surpass the vents capability to exhaust it. The fluid will become aerated, rise up and blow out the vent and/or fill tube. Another cause is due to an over filled transmission.

A damaged part or faulty valve/solenoid can result in a transmission fluid leak.
