There was about 1qt of oil in the engine. Maybe 2 if you count the oil in the filter. She had an “oil change” about 1000 miles ago so there was no way she leaked that much in that amount of time without visible signs, that’s when we went to the tranny. And we discovered that there was a lot of oil in the trans. We assume whoever was doing oil changes mistook the trans slot for the oil slot and just kept filling it up every 5,000 miles.
