I guess perhaps half quart at a time and check it?

If it's between the hash marks, you are fine. If you want to add more, go a little at a time, once it's in there it's a lot of work to get a small amount back out. Add just a little and recheck. IF you have issue with it shifting, adding a little fluid won't help at this point. Best to do a drain and fill to see if it helps.
