Default hey all i need advice

I have a 2003 dodge ram 1500. I was changing the transmission fluid. OK I loosened the bolts on the pan and I walked away when I came back ii forgot and started and put the truck in gear and trans fluid shot every wear. Now I took the pan off changed both filters and put the pan back up now I already put 9quarts in and it doesn't seem to really b visible on the dipstick should I ad more. I know its normally 5.6quarts for a fluid change did I remove more because I turned the truck on while the pan was loose

Welcome to the Z!

Before you add any more fluid, warm up the truck in park, then check the fluid. I doubt you spun any fluid out of the torque converter but it's possible.

Then add 1/2 quart at a time, measuring in-between each 1/2 quart added. Just sorta sneak up on it.
