According to the Haynes manual, with the torque converter drained, it is 17.7 quarts.

If I were you I would use Motorcraft or a high end auto transmission fluid.

Good luck.

The hub should just slide out if you removed the big outer snap/lock ring.

If they are sticky, I thread a couple of the screws back in (that held the cover on) and use those to get a good hold on them.

To totally change the tranny fluid, you're going to want to buy like 22-24 quarts.


To just drop the plug on the pan and drain that, you'll want 8 quarts.
