Default Auto Trans Seal Replaced How Much ATF?

I took my new to me 2006 with 3.0 engine and auto trans to local shop. Said a seal was leaking and they replaced it. They said they refilled ATF but I noticed the job receipt billed me for 5 qits. synthetic ATF. Don't they hold 10 qts? Could you replace a seal w/o draining all the ATF?

Any thoughts?

Pan seal and rear output shaft. I checked the fluid level when it was hot-it was fine, and the fluid looks new. Mechanic says now he did not do a drain and flush...so 5 qts. were all needed.

So 5 qts. sounds ok?

Sure, if it’s showing full on the stick you are good to go.

The fluid level was mid way between top and bottom marks. Dipstick says "Do not fill if level is between marks" So I guess that means fluid is dispersed as trans is hot?

Sorry to seem dumb but I am ignorant about this. And this truck is different to me....I feel so lucky to find a truck so babied and cared for by its owner-i don't want to screw it up. She is 12 years old but totally clean (except for the tailgate, that's another post!

That sounds about right for a train and fill. Lots of fluid stays captive in the torque converter.
