It's supposed to be about four quarts. What motor do you have (I'm asking this so I can move it to the appropriate section)? I believe this is for an auto tranny, so it can't be four quarts. Please clarify what kind of transmission you have as well.

BTW, this has been discussed many times before. Please use the search function before asking questions.

I drained around 6 quarts so I put 6 back in. The dipstick says its full so i guess thats where I'l stop for now. If anyone knows different please tell me so I dont mess up my tranny. I forgot to mention that its a 1.6 and an automatic.

I drained about 6 quarts (with pan off), so it seems it may be similar. Haynes said capacity 2.6 quarts for drain and refill for automatic transmission. I find Haynes is off on some of their specs. I used Valvoline Maxlife Dexron 3. Seems to work just fine.

fill it till it says max then turn on the car and check it again, the tq converter can hold a lot of fluid.

The liquid on the dipstick is a little over the full marking. I guess i will go let a little out. I want to make sure not to overfill it. Thanks James.

Roughly 1/2 of the fluid is in the torque converter. There is no drain for the converter, so the amount of fluid you get out is different every time. The FSM says to measure the amount of fluid, and replace that amount.

When checking the fluid, run the shift selector through all the positions several times, and then check with the engine running and in Park.

The high stall converter I have in my car drains almost completely (takes about 30 minutes, though), so to fill I have to add about half the fluid, start the car, and shift it through the positions to fill the converter. Then I add the remaining fluid.
