1988

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F250 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have you checked the fluid level, engine running in park?

The convertor gets filled by the oil pump, with the engine running.

If the level is correct, then you have another internal problem.

Does it have a factory torque convertor and flexplate?

how much oil is in a c6 auto
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
no i just need a answer
Transmission Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

Generally 13 quarts.

12 to start should have gears, let it warm get the level correct a bit at a time.

Have you got a dipstick tube?

That's where all early trans get filled in vehicle.

i know that but it looks like the new converter is not getting oil
Transmission Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

The only way that can happen is either the pump is not driven from the convertor, or there some other abnormality.

How far forward did the convertor come to meet with the flexplate?

If it comes to too far forward, then you have no oil pump.

All converters fill from the oil pump.

same gear box refitted after a complete rebuilt and the converter only move the normal distance
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
i worked out in my manual that the box need about 11 lt of oil and i have only put in about 5 lt so far
Transmission Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

I said 12 - 13 quarts initially.

Get the fluid in there.

You'll burn it up from new with insufficient oil..

Two people, one on the key, one on the dipstick.
