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

How do you change transmission fluid on Hyundai Sonata year 2007?

You take it to a dealer or lube shop and have them pump out the old and replace with new fluid. The reason for this is that you want to replace all the fluid in the transmission and the torque converter at the same time. If you try to do it yourself you'll be left with fluid in the torque converter which will contaminate the new fluid. Costs anywhere from 125.00 to 165.00
