Did you check the level with the trans being warmed up and in neutral?

It actually will take about 2 1/2 qts. Not much out is it??? That why the best way is to go get it done by a shop that has a machine to do it.

Or look in the FAQs section for the easy traanny oil change.

At my shop its $140.
Others charge less, like the big chain shops, Pepboys, etc.

I have been told by more than one customer how it was done "last time" on their car at the quickie lube place.

They stuck a tube down the dip stick hole and sucked out about 2-3 qts, and then topped it up. They paid $80 for that "trans service".

We actually use a machine and a flushing chemical, and it replaces ALL of the fluid with new.

The oil in the torque converter usually hold alot of fluid. More than a gallon I would guess.
