When you do your fluid change - measure the new stuff as you put it in. Don't go along with a can of oil that says it contains XX litres or quarts. Measure it in a plastic / glass measuring jug. You are better off getting a measuring jug that has graduated marks embossed in the side of it rather than something that has had a transfer or printing on it. If you are unsure of the accuracy of your measuring jug 1 litre of water at 20 degrees C is more or less 1kg in weight. Yes it is a good idea to be that anal about measuring!

And don't forget the torque converter.
