Make sure vehicle is on leveled ground, run it for a couple minutes and re check

haw many miles on your car ? has transmission been SVC before like filter and oil ect. has you transmission ever been flushed ? will be very good to know before you drain any oil out ⚠️ best way to SVC, is to take to a shop tath has the machine to suck the oil out completely drain converter to, if you just drain 2 quarts of oil and added only one what you just did is mix clean oil with dirty oil and this is not good for your trany. to completely flush trany will take 7to10 quarts of oil, keep in mind know all facts before you do it best to you arad

Arad, I think he's working on a manual transmission otherwise wouldn't have an overflow plug
