The glide dipstick leaks a lot if not properly sealed , it uses an o-ring , I generally pull it out, use a new o-ring and put a good bead of silicone on it and stick it back in the case,tighten mounting bolt on bellhousing and let it sit overnight before re-filling with fluid. Also on the pan gasket I don't use the cork gasket I use the racing style gasket , and use a very thin film of silicone on each side when installing and also let it sit overnight and cure out , generally takes care of the problem.
Now of course you need to dry all trans fluid on pan rails and trans case before you put the silicone on it.
Your stock stick will tell you when its full , the deep pan adds about 2 -3 quarts extra I think.
