How much ATF do I really need????

Postby AZRoushStang » Thu Feb 22, 2007 6:50 am

So yeah, the service manual says 10 7/8 qrts of ATF for the tranny. But then it follows that statement with.."Dry quantity."

So when doing a fluid exchange, how much ATF do I really need to buy. I know some quantity is going to get left in the torque converter, but how much?

Any thoughts????

I've often wondered the same as the dealership told me that the transmission oil change takes about 15 liters. For those who have had the transmission oil change how many quarts or liters did the dealership charge for?

Didn't Blink or somebody change out all their fluids? I'm sure someone knows or you can do a search and find probably find the thread.
