    Default 08 TC Transmission drain Pan How much oil?

    Hi,

    I changed the filter and put in a B&M drain plug last year so I can drain and replace some fluid each year. I have the info on how much fluid I need to buy but it is not nearby.

    It should be about the same as a pan drop amount.

    Before I go to the store, anybody remember how much fluid is needed if you drop the pan?

    Jay

    When I've done the suction method using the fill tube in my 2000 MGM, I've gotten about a gallon with some left in the pan. You should be good with 5-6 quarts if everything is the same on your 08.

    With the B&M drain plug I drained fluid and added 3 qts 21 oz and now I need to suck out a little as it is just over the max when hot on an 80 degree day.

    IIRC it is a bit more with the U-Haul pan on the Marauder.
