If you think that something is gunked up (technical term ) you can try a can of Seafoam'* TransTune and see if it frees it up. It worked on my daughter'* tranny when it was slipping while cold. I used it at the suggestion of a mechanic who recommended it. Other than that, you may have to remove those thousands of bolts again and drop the pan to see if maybe the filter developed a crack.

If i though i could have gotten the old one out with out screwing my self with getting it stuck then i would have. Cuz it was in there pretty good.

Far as how tight the new filter went in, it was F'ing tight. i could not just press it in, i had to use the Rubber Mallet to tap it in.

I used about 7.5ish quarts. i put 7 in after doing it slowly.

I put 6 in cuz i new i could at lest put 6, Then i slowly added more after letting it warm up
and going though the gears and checking and adding.

Then after putting all 7 in, it was just at the full line, now that was week ago, yesterday i checked it again and it was down about 1/2 a quart so i added and checked,
and today just now i checked it, its sitting nicely right at full
You are counting full at the middle of the crosshatch right?

You may have a little too much fluid...not sure if it'* related to the problem though.

Personally...You saw what happened when I used that same stinking rubber mallet on my car.

Hop down the bunny trail and get another filter kit. I'm thinking part of the plastic cracked when you tapped it. Replace...refill...
