Problem is, my dipstick is slightly bent so whenever I check the transmission level, thereís fluid all over the dipstick. Itís damn near impossible to get an accurate reading.

I drained it it last night and removed about 4.6 quarts, and I only had 4 quarts to put back in it. I very well could have over filled it before, accounting for the extra 0.6 quarts. Iím contemplating whether or not I go and pick up another quart just in case, or leave my car for the weekend and let the fluid settle as much as possible and check it on Sunday.

You can straighten the dipstick pretty easily with a bench vice and a pair of pliars, just make a bunch of tiny adjustments until it's straight.
