Re: The trans fluid volume after filter/fluid change 2002...
Use the level you attained after putting that much fluid in to tell you how much more to add. Start the car, leave it in park with the emergency brake on as you do this. If you are halfway to the cold mark, add another 1/2 quart and check again. (the owner's manual should tell you how much it will hold.) Since trans fluid expands with heat do not overfill. After you get it to the cold mark, run it up the road for 20 minutes and then check it again. You should be at the top of the hot mark.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Check The Transmission Fluid, Is It Low? Check At Operating Temperature, Is The Fluid In The Cross Hatched Area Of The Dip Stick? Is It Touching The Dip Stick? If It Is Not On The Dip Stick It May Just Be Low, Or, After You Add Fluid To Top It Off (Get It In The Cross Hatched Area Of The Dip Stick) And It Still Will Not Go Into Gear Or Move The Vehicle Normally, The Clutches May Be Smoked (Shot, Ruined) Have An Experienced Transmission Mechanic Look At It To Tell For Sure. If You Could Get It To A Trans. Shop By Trailer, They May Take A Quick Look & Tell You If There Is Any Hope. Hope This Helps.
First have the car / truck at operating temperature then ck level within the the range bar on your dip stick, ( looks like a criss cross pattern at the end of dip stick, fluid should be in that range if not add trans fluid as needed maybe 1/2 to 1 qt at a time unless you see no fluid on dip stick add full qt and recheck.

first locate the dip stick for the transmission under the hood, after that start car and let run for 1 min,( car has to be running to check transmission) pull dip stick out and wipe it off the stick it back in and check the level again, if it is low you will have to pour the trans. fluid in thru the dip stick hole, add a little at a time and continue to check fluid level until it reachs fill mark on dip stick also the do not make a manuel for the Lincoln LS you can order a disk from Helminc.com that covers all related thigns for this car I had to order one for my LS good luck
Depends on what the fluid was you changed??? Did you change the oil? How about the filter? 4 qts should not go past the full line. If you left the filter in there, then yo might have too much, the filter holds quite a bit, maybe half qt. The filter needs to be changed with the oil every time, most important, If you go out now, but a filter, take it off, replace it, you roil level should be right. You won't lose anything but what has to come out anyway, too much oil makes a mess in engine. I don't 1/2 qt. will do anything though. It will be gone in a week or 2. Check it out, hope this helps.
The proper fluid level is marked on the dip stick. With the engine running and in park, raise the hood and remove the dip stick from the autotrans filler tube. With a clean rag, wipe down the stick and then place the dip stick all the way back in the tube again, and then pull it out once more.
Holding the stick level, you can now read what the fluid level is.
If you add any fluid, do so in small amounts, such as a half a pint at a time.
Do not add fluid with engine running.
