The top one if it satifies mercon v specs. Should state on the label. Always add atf in pint (16oz.) or 1/2 pint (8oz.) increments. Add and check. Add and check. Also, always check atf level with engine warm and idling in park. In your case, i would add a pint (16oz.) and call it good.

Wow... read in the owner manual, it says clearly that needs to be Mercon V compatible.
