I would use atf +4 for Chrysler

The transmission holds about 12 qts empty and you could never blow all fluid out even if you tried I would pick up 6 qts

Add one quart at a time, then put in reverse then drive for about 5 seconds each

check fluid and repeat until you get to the low mark on stick

DO NOT OVERFILL there is not a easy way to get fluid back out without making a mess.

Then drive unit until warm and recheck/add fluid as needed.
