capacity of trans pan with internal filter

I have been told 7.5 qts. But i dropped my pan and changed filters today. I put 7.5 quarts back in it and with the trans temp at 155, and the truck in park, the fluid isnt even registering on the dipstick. before i got buy more fluid, can someone give me an idea of what it'll take

If you have a TorqShift, its about 15 qts. I don't know what the 6.4's have behind them.

I have a torqueshift, but according the manual the entire change is only 17.5 quarts, so i don't see how the pan is 15 of that.

Sorry, I didn't mean the pan held 15 and I was a little off in that estimate. I know that when I change the fluid in my 2005, I go through about 16 qts.

I'd add another 1/2 qt and check your level again. Keep repeating until you're at the full mark on the dipstick. Its possible you were a little low on fluid before you dropped the pan and may have to add a little more to bring you back up to full.

We do approx. 9 qts on a pan removal/filter/s service only. I would add in 1/2 qt. increments till full, hope this helps.

If you're not above the "min" line, then you need it.

let me clarify.
I have no clue how much fluid goes in the pan. I had already purchased and put in 8 quarts. I am not out of fluid and still not on the dipstick. Thus i need to go the dealer and get more fluid. However i do not want to buy 4 more quarts it 1 or 2 will do. Does that make sense? Top off the cost of the fluid with the fact the dealer is a good 20 minutes from me.

I'd just do it in dealers the parking lot and get it up to the "hot" line. Buy one or 2 at a time.
Don't forget your funnel!

I'm curious to hear how many it takes (as a lot of people are I'm sure.) Might be doing it this way from now on.

EDIT: Ok... I'm and idiot and just thought about it for more than 2 seconds. Might not be a good idea to drive it when its low on fluid.
