Transmission fluid!!

Ok, so ive discovered that my gasket on my transmission is bad, and when I moved my jeep not even a mile down the road it wouldn't go back into reverse once I stopped. I then realized I had no transmission fluid almost and had someone bring me some. I put it in slowly and realized it was running out at a decent pace. My jeep is currently being towed to my house where me and my dad are going to try to replace the gasket it needs, and see what happens. I need to know about how much transmission fluid a 97' wrangler (automatic), will hold, and if anyone has had this problem and if it caused further damage to the transmission.

-Thanks, Jake.

Hard to say if there is internal damage, though if it was pouring out that is not a good thing. I would flush the system out as best you can then fill it. Not sure on how much, Also I think the auto's have a limp home mode they can go into if they get damaged.. gets locked in 2nd gear or something, os if after test yours in stuck.. then that is not a good sign either... should you need a used one try
