Default Foaming ATF help!

I have a 74 F100 with a three speed auto trans in it (I think C4). It drives but it shifts into second late (about 20-25 mph). Second to third is fine. I checked my fluid level and the dipstick was covered in foamy bubbles about an inch past the "full" mark. Ive found that some people say its too full, or maybe a vacuum leak in the trans. I just drained a tiny bit of fluid and it was super frothy. I'm not sure what all of that means. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks

I would look for a cooler leak. Coolant may be getting into the fluid. Check the radiator for evidence of oil.

In my research I saw that that might be an problem however the oil cooler is completely seperate from the radiator.
