The car was warm before we changed the filter and fluid and I let it run about 5 minutes after. Also shifted thru all the gears a couple of times before checking it. Took it for a 6 mile ride, checked it again and it still showed about 3/4 down, but at that point I only added 1/2 quart to be on the safe side.
We just drove the car on a 40 mile trip on a hot day to boot and before shutting it off I checked it again and it showed just under the Full mark. Therefore proving your point about checking it when it wasn't hot enough, but yet still my car takes 6 1/2 quarts to fill it.

OK, sounds good. If I remember right, I also had to add a bit when I changed the trans fluid in my '93 and '94. But I don't remember adding 3/4's of a quart. I'm sure there are variances in the dipsticks as well. I wouldn't worry about it though.
