    Nope you are correct, it does hold 11 quarts, however only 5- 5.5 of it is recoverable from the drain plug. To get the full 11 out you have to drop the pan, which I'm not equiped to do.

    So when you pulled the drain plug nothing or very little came out or 5qts drained out?

    Around 1-2 quarts drained, the remaining of it was lost from the leak.

    You'd have to drain the torque converter. There won't be much in the pan that doesn't drain out the plug.

    I'd find a salvage yard unit and swap, given the fact pattern.

    I would try to get the truck in for a tranny service. If dropping $400 on a detailed look over of the tranny and a flush/full fixes it, you’ll be glad you did. If it doesn’t, you don’t be out of too much cash. Sounds like you have air in the valve body or not enough fluid to be honest. Also if you blew all your tranny oil out you may have fried your pump or valve body, which would be cheaper to replace than the whole transmission.

    It’s quite a drive from Wagoner, but you might give M and M performance in Norman a call. They do automotive work, it’s also a DIY shop, and they offer DIY bay rentals with or without tool rentals and with/without paid help/instruction. Great guys, I’m acquaintances with one of the owners. They’re likely more flexible than most shops.

    Be sure and replace the torque converter, as it will be full of metal/fiber particles from the clutch facings (which I'm sure are gone).
