I'm assuming you have an automatic. Sounds to me you need a rebuild before you just put in fluids and go. The clutch discs are too far gone.

How did you know how much fliud to add? Engine has to be running when the plug is removed to check the fluid it can't be added while the engine is off. You will never get a proper reading.
