OOooo not good if you don't find fluid. Nothing on the dip stick? Smell the stick, does it smell burned? Also, I just had an AOD rebuilt, and my tech said if the TV cable is misadjusted, it can burn one up in 4 miles. It takes about 12 qts to change the fluid, some will stay in the converter, so if you don't get much out, it may be toast. Rebuild kits are about 100 or so and about 700 more to put them in. Good luck.
