How many quarts of transmission fluid will it take to flush and refill my 2008 Pontiac GT G6?


the only way to properly flush an auto transmission is to do it with the engine running
it requires a filling line and a drain line so that fresh oil is put in and drained out
this process flushes out the torque converter
if you just plan to empty the pan a few times then there will be stale oil left in the converter as it never empties on a drain of the pan only
It is far better to find an accredited shop to do the flush
normally it takes about 5 gallons for the flush

How many quarts of transmission fluid do u need for a 2003 MITSUBISHI montero sport?


Are you replacing the filter? Are you replacing the transmission? Are you flushing or replacing the torque converter? Which motor & transmission? All these things make a huge difference in how much fluid it takes to refill it.

Transaxel fluid capacity


15 quarts is total capacity of transmission, toprque converter, lines and the cooling reservoir. What you would have to add if a new transmission was being installed.
8 quarts is the capacity if you were to drain the transmission on the car, like if you were doing a flush and refill, you take the lower transm. pan off and let all fluid drain, you will only get about 8 quarts.

How much transmission fluid does the Chevy Express Van hold? We don't have an owner's manual


Hi, you can download a manual here, but it does not specify the transmission capacity:
http://www.extendedgmwarranty.com/owners-manual/chevrolet/2006-Chevrolet-Express.pdfHere is the info you need:
4L60-E transmission Service change only - 5 quarts. Total refill - 11.2 quarts.

Total refill would include a tear-down of the transmission and empty the torque converter. If you are just dropping the pan and changing the filter, 5 quarts should do it.
