Auto Transmission Fluid Change

Post by blue_can » Thu Feb 15, 2018 1:24 pm

Does anyone know the quantity of ATF needed for transmission fluid change taking into account what will be left in the torque converter. This would just to drop the pan and refill with fluid and clean out the magnets and filter.

Just over 3 qts worked for me when I did it recently. I got mine on sale at Napa for $5.

Thanks for finding the dry fill spec, by the way.
