Between the torque converter, radiator and transmission line, they hold about 2 - 2.5 quarts. I can almost promise you that you were low to begin with when you replace the fluid the first time.
I just serviced an 89 260E a few weeks ago, I had to add 4.5 quarts before it shifted smoothly. Can't really use the dipstick level. It is not accurate until the fluid is at running temp.
