I am replacing the oil in my transmission, and am somewhat confused by the amount that it is taking. The trans holds 4.7 quarts, but you can
supposedly only replace 3.2 of those. I drained mine and started refilling it today, and so far it has taken 4 quarts and the level is still maybe a half inch bellow the fill hole.
The rear of the van was slightly lower than the front when I drained it, could that have allowed me to drain more than the 3.2 quarts? Should I just keep adding more? And also, what is the appropriate level? Bentley specifies up to the bottom of the drain hole, but then I have heard mention that it should only be a little under the hole. What is the consensus?
Thanks for your help on this perhaps overcautious inquiry.
Just fill till its even with the fill holes bottom and your good to go.
