if all your changed was the fluid and filter, start with 3 quarts and add as necessary to bring it up to a good level on the stick. If you took out the torque converter and rebuilt the transmission, start with 5 or 6 quarts.

Make sure you run it for a few seconds in each gear before you take another reading. The fluid needs to be pumped through Park, and pumped through Reverse and pumped through Neutral and pumped through Drive and 3 and 2 and 1 individually to get an accurate reading on the stick. if You just add it and check it, it will be artificially high on the stick. RUN IT THROUGH THE GEARS, AND DO NOT OVERFILL
