start by adding four quarts then start the vehicle and top off as needed, then drive it around and check it again after test drive to confirm propper level..

You could use an empty drain pan, catch what drains out and measure it ! Since you are not having any problems, no leaks etc. it should be a very accurate measurement of how much needs to be put back in ! nobull
