Well, let me tell you about my misadventure with a leaky transmission. I decided to change the fluid and filter myself. I got everything back together and went to fill it up. After 6.5 quarts (holds about 9), I get a leak. It is pouring out. I dropped the pan 3 times before I gave up and called the mechanic to tow it. They called me up to tell me it was ready and ask me if by chance I had drained the torque converter. "Drain it???" That was when he informed me that it held about 3 or so quarts of fluid. Seems my 6.5 was actually overfilling the transmission. I had a good seal on the pan the first time I put it back up. I was just overfilling the thing.
