Hello, below are the refill specs. Follow for pan removal

Install the oil pan gasket, the oil pan, and hand start the oil pan bolts.

  1. Tighten the oil pan bolts to 12 Nm (9 ft. lbs.).
  2. Lower the vehicle.
  3. Refill transaxle using DEXRON (R) III P/N 21019223 or equivalent oil to the specified refill capacity.
    • The bottom pan removal capacity is approximately 6.5 L (6.9 qt.).
    • The complete overhaul capacity is approximately 9 L (9.5 qt.).
    • The dry capacity is approximately 12.2 L (12.9 qt.).
