Add fluid until it is at or just above the full mark with the car off. start the car and immediately check the fluid and add until you can see fluid on the bottom of the stick. Get in the car, press the brake and shift through all of the gear ranges. Put trans back in park and continue checking and adding fluid until it is between the cold and full hot marks. Drive around the block to heat up and circulate the fluid. Then top it off.
