If you mean how much fluid needs to be replaced after you drop the pan and change the filter its 6-6.5 qts for the 4t65e transmission. Should be close to there for 4t60e.

if you do decide to drive the car, be sure to bring a quart or two of fluid in the trunk, just in case. Probably a funnel too.. it'* kinda hard to fill up ATF without one . And whenever I add fluid to my transmission, I like it at 3/4 full on the crosshatched area. That way it'* definitely not going to run low, and not going to overfill it. Same thing with engine oil.

Default reading the level

I have a hard time reading the level... Are there any secrets or am I just color blind or something?

Look for the fluid being thick on the dipstick. As well turn the dipstick over and look at the other side. Can be a pain at times.
