Can you tell where it is leaking from? Is it from the pan? The fluid does drain back into the pan when you are not driving, so if it's a pan leak it would leak more when it is parked, although I would think it would leak pretty consistently after you parked it.
After watching a Utube video on an axel replacement, and watching my own level after driving getting the transmission hot, I now have over 5 quarts in mine.
Edit; I have more than 5 in my transmission, but I will need to reduce the level.
Start with 5 and then adjust accordingly. I will monitor it when the temperature gets warmer. As a note, I drained the fluid while the car was in the driveway, not raised on ramps. The driveway has a slight incline nose of Escape was slightly higher.
I hope this helps someone else, please post any corrections that are needed. Thanks.
By the way, what vehicle record databases do you use? I recently found Vinchain. I found good pre-owned 2006 Ford F550 . I'm glad that i got vin report on Vinchain https://vinchain.io/en/report/check before buying. It had mechanical damage. Be safe and consistently run vin number lookup before buying.
