That's a good point... I've never used less than 6 quarts. That could very well be it.

OP, the procedure for the ATF fill is you let it dribble out the fill hole, then plug it and (with the car level), bring the temp up to between 30 and 50C, change gears a couple of times, then, with the engine running (in Park), open the drain plug... you'll need to put in another liter or so, until it dribbles out again.
