Question How much ATF needed?


Just like to know how much ATF is needed for the automatic transmission fluid change?

Also what is the difference between transmission oil and ATF?

Yeah, that's about right.


The manual says the capacity is 8 quarts, but you won't be able to drain nearly that. I usually get about 6 quarts in there -- buy 7 just to be safe. Don't overfill it otherwise you will be black flagged at Thunderhill for making smoke on left hand turns due to leaking ATF!

ATF is oil, just a very specific kind that both lubricates and provides enough friction (viscosity) to make the torque converter work. People really ought to change their ATF more often than they do.
