I am going to be doing an ATF flush and need to know how many quarts of ATF is needed. I did do a search but didnt find anything. Thanks

its not atf in our auto trannies, its a special mineral oil you can only find at a dealer or an online store like ecs.

have you looked at how the flush is done yet?

the car uses quite a lot of the atf if you decide to drop the pan and change the filter.

I bought $130 worth of Pentosin ATF last time when I did mine(draind twice), plus like 25 for the filter/gasket.

there are some cheaper alternatives identified now

a flush replaces like 13qts or something. a drain and fill is more like 5 qts
