Tranny Pan Capacity

Does 5 qts sound about right ?? Dealership said about 4 but when I drained it sure as hell looks like more. I put 5 in and drove then checked but it still looked low. Hard to read dipstick. Atleast I finally fixed the temp sensor

Here is a thread about your tranny. Scroll down for fluid change info. It's a good read. Lots of info.

I drained nearly 8 quarts out of mine.

Thanks for the link. Pisses me off that the stealership parts guy couldn't tell/find out how much it would take. "Oh yeah 4 qts. will be enough" WTF!!!

When I did mine the first time, I had read somewhere about using old milk jugs and making quart marks on each one, then drain the fluid into each one. Then I knew. Was time consuming, but it was a good learning tool.

Well if I was really smart I would have drain the fluid into a CLEAN container and reused it . The fluid was very clean. I figured it wouldn't have been that clean. The place where I bought it from must have changed the fluid. I've only put 22k on it since I've owned it. Live and learn

Not really a bad thing to do when buying used. Now you know for sure the right fluid is in there. And, you know how many miles are on the fluid. I changed mine out the week I bought mine. Didn't matter what the fluid looked like.
Piece of mind.
