      During an engine swap in my 96 4.0 auto explorer, I had to pull the Torque converter with the engine. (seized)

      Of course during the pull I lost about 3/4 to a quart of fluid +/-.

      I stabbed it yesterday and then I realized I didn't replenish the lost fluid.

      Do I have to pull it and add the fluid or will it even out when I fill the tranny?
