How many quarts does a 92 chev silverado transmission take

I looked at info for 92 chevy c1500 pickup--5.7L engine, automatic. My database on that model year, won't say, Silverado.
I'm not a tranny person, I doubt you can totally drain the tranny and the torque converter has fluid. I don't like to change tranny fluid on older vehicles, I've seen too many people have problems. If the specs aren't correct, blame the database, not me. Keep an eye on your tranny dip stick.

2001 silverado starts but won't stay running and when you give it gas it acts like it's gasping for air or spits and sputter, i have replaced the fuel filter and the fuel pump works. Please give me any...

Hello even know the fuel pump works, it may have low pressure. these pumps are high pressure pumps. here is the fuel pressure spec

Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.

If you look at the bottom of the transmission pan and one corner is sort of cut off a triangle portion, the tranny is a 350 Turbo-Glide,
If the transmission pan is square, it's a 400 (best!)
There should be a tag on the transmission, an aluminum tag which has a number on it.
If this is a factory transmission, the VIN number will also indicate which transmission it is. Just call the dealer with this info.
Good luck

I have a 4x4 chevy silverado truck and just had a new motor insta

After 8 years, you put in a fresh engine but do not touch the transmission, at least the torque converter? Seriously, hindsight is great, isn't it! Well, you got my take on it. I think you might need to change out that torque converter at the very least and if you do drop the tranny to change that converter, have the transmission gone through as well. Doing any less is just asking for trouble. That fresh engine is just too much for the ole tranny! Sorry for the bad news my friend but that's the way I see em! Let me know what you decide?

the modulator is not to hard to replace. you will see a vacuum line runnin to it. sometimes when you put them in, the tranny doesn't shift right so you have to adjust them. their is a little allen head screw in where the vaccum line goes on. it's been a while but they are around 20 to 30 bucks

1995 chevrolet 3500 transmission

I own a shop, and think you should have a 4L-60 in it. These look just like a 700 R-4, but aren't. There isn't much difference in them, but according to my books it should have the 4l60, but some were 4l80. The 4l80 was mostly for the diesel engines though. Glad to help out, Good Luck!!!
