It should hold between 10-13 qts It all depends on how big of cooler you have and if the lines, cooler, and torque converter are completely drained. Heres a tip before you start the car take the tranny lines off the tranny and take a 6'(it dont have to be exactly 6") long rubber hose that fits tight on 1 of the tranny lines. Slide it over the line and clamp it on there, take a pick, nail, screw or anything that will make a small hole. Make a hole in the rubber hose about 2" from the tranny line. Get 1 or 2 cans of brake clean put the straw from the brake clean in the hole you made and put an air blower in the other end of your hose. start spraying the brake clean and the air blower at the same time and keep spraying till it is flowing clear out of the other tranny line. Make sure your flowing through the cooler and not the tranny. By doing this you get all the crappy tranny fluid from the old tranny out of the lines and cooler. Watch your eyes it burns very bad if you get brake clean in them. WEAR GOOGLES OR SAFETY GLASSES!!!! Goodluck, Kyle

How do i change transmission lines on a 2002 olds alero

Getting to them is your hardest part. If you have the replacements you can see how they are routed. They are just screw type ends on either side of both the send and receive. Really getting them in and out of the angles it takes is the hardest part. Don't forget to drain the tranny fluid before you start and replaced it when done.

2002 toyota sienna change transmission fluid and

The drain plug is on the bottom of the transmission. Its torqued to 49 nM.
1. Remove tranny oil pan drain plug
2. Drain old fluid (roughly 2-4 quarts)
3. Reinstall drain plug.
4. Measure amount drained in a 99 cent orange juice pitcher from Walmart
5. Pour back the same amount drained using Toyota Type T-IV fluid (available in 1 quart bottles from a Toyota dealer.
6. Start engine and shift slowly through all the gears ending in Park.
7. Check fluid level on the dipstick. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level to a point inbetween the COLD and HOT marks on the dipstick.
8. Go for a 20 minute drive and recheck fluid level. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level up to,
but not beyond, the upper half of the HOT range on the dipstick.

As in 1973, NO FLUSHING is needed and NO FILTER REPLACEMENT is needed, NO PAN REMOVAL is needed. As, as in 1973 todays Toyotas have a metal mesh filter screen that doesn't ever get clogged except in rare cases of transmission operational abuse, including failure to ever change the fluid for 150,000 miles or more.

How many quarts of transmission fluid does it hold

You didn't state what size engine you have.
The 2.2 engine----- 6.9 qts.
The 2.3 engine-----7.4 qts.
The 2.4 is 7.4 qts.
The 3.1 is 7.4 qts.
The 3.4 is 6.9 qts.
These are the capacities for refilling after being drained.

Where is the dipstick located for the transmission fluid on a 2005 Pontiac Sunfire

According to the owners manual unless you drive in hilly, or heavy stop and go traffic like a taxi, you should never have to add trans mission fluid unless you have a leak. The manual doesn't even give a fluid capacity for the auto transmission. So I guess when you have to have the auto trans. filter changed, you have to take the car to a transmission specialist. If in fact the filter even needs to be changed. The manual leaks you to believe that the transmission fluid and filter are lifetime products.
