The 3.4 liters has a capacity of 4.5 quarts. Fill 4 quarts, and eventually top up qith the last half quart at the end. Some oil always remains inside the engine after bleeding.

A 2002 Buick Rendezvous FWD transmission fluid change how much fluid do I need? I also discovered leakage, Do I change the gasket and pan as I am about to change the ATF filter?

Is the pan gasket leaking ? You would normally get a new gasket with the filter so the gasket gets changed too.
Most models hold about 4-6 quarts of ATF. I would start with 4 and add until the trans is full. Your torque converter does not get drained.

Where is the oil pump in my 2002 buick rendezvous

Before replacing the oil pump, which is a huge job, I would have someone check the actual oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. It is more likely a bad sending unit.

2003 rendezvous transmission fluid change how much fluid do i need?

  • A full transmission fluid change, like as in a flush, requires 9.5 quarts of DEXIII/M transmission fluid.
  • If you are going to be dropping the pan at home to swap the filter and gasket you will not loos near full capacity of transmission fluid. For this you may loose 3 quarts (give or take a bit). 4 Quarts on hand would be plenty for this case.
  • Don't forget to (with you foot on the brake) run the transmission through the every gear for a few seconds to fill the pockets before you check the level. if you do drop the pan.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
