I don't think the disptick reading is normal, the 5mm below the mark sounds good for a cold reference. I use that and it's always around there when it's cold (engine running)

I would start the car and suck out some of the ATF using the topsider until the level is where it should be at "shop temperature" as the user's manual calls it. (engine running, tranny in P)

Then I'd drive it around (highway, city, etc.) until the tranny is nice and warm (takes a while I think)

good luck!
