Check the dip stick to see IF it's full. Owners manual can help also! Scan test for the trans. should show shift problems.
Thanks pushrod!

capacity is 8.5-9.1 qts for the tranny but that would be complete overhaul. if your draining and refilling catch what you drain measure and put the same amount in and then check your dipstick then add as necessary. when checking at fluid make sure the engine is running and completely warmed up.

When replacing engine oil it should be around 5 quarts. check your dipstick add as necessary.
What engine do you have? 8th digit of the vin?
