It's something like 8 quarts. I'll check the manual when I get home.

You'll drain about 4 quarts through the pan. It's half a step more to drain the torque converter. Why not do it?

What would happen is that you'll aerate the fluid diminishing its ability to serve as a working fluid, lubricant and coolant. What should happen is that you correct the level ASAP. At some point you reach a point of no return where you'll damage the transmission, ruin the fluid or both.
