I could be wrong here, but doesn't say Haynes say to add four quarts as a first step, and then run the engine, shift through all the gears, put it into neutral and then check the dipstick and top up bit by bit until it's at the correct "cold fill" level? And then check it again for the hot fill level after you've driven it to warm the trans up to normal operating temp?

Well, actually it says to add two quarts as a first step, but your point is well taken and a reminder to always RTFM and follow the steps to the end.

Anyone else?? I'm sure that there's more than 37 of us that use a manual.

For best illustrations , get the Factory parts list . FSM ain't that good for pics

Factory Service manual , parts list are my go to references .
