2004 6.0 trans flush

Ok so I’ve been reading around a lot. I understand I need to change the cartridge filter and inline filter in the trans pan. Now computer says I need to change fluid at 15 qts. What would people use. I’m a huge amsoil guy and I’ve also heard that people use the 08’ trans pan. Any help would be nice.

Order the toilet paper filter for the '04. Order an '08 pan and '08 filter. Order 15 qts of Amsoil trans fluid. When you get everything have at it. That's what I did. I can't remember the exact amount I refilled with but I think it was 12 qts(?). Anyhow, I have north of 348K on my trans now.

That's the "toilet paper" filter.

The entire volume of transmission fluid is around 19 quarts. Just by draining the pan through the drain plug will get a little over 8 quarts out. Dropping the pan will get another quart or so out.

WOW!! I've got to check my notes. There is some procedure that escapes me at present that purges another qt or 2? Maybe something to do with the trans cooler? I did it when I went to the Mag HyTech pan. Maybe that holds a little more as well.

So more then likely I won’t be able to get all of the fluid out.
