I just had Royal Purple put in.

They said it would only take four quarts. And dont worry that its a half quart lower. They said it would run over if they added more. My question is if this transmission is suppose to have 4.5, what is the problem? Am I ok with only four quarts?

That's strange. My gtp takes 4.5 quarts too and they've never used less than that at the oil change shops I go to.

check your dipstick over the next few days to be sure it doesn't need more

It probably does have 4.5 quarts in it, but it is 4.0 quarts new stuff, 0.5 quarts old stuff.
