How many quarts of transmission fluid?

The Haynes manual says 23.5 pints which equals 11.75 quarts for a C^ automatic transmission. That seems like way too much. Can anyone tell me how much it usually takes when changing the fluid and filter? Thanks!

Most torque converters take like 6+ full and then 1 for the lines and at least 6 for the pan and such so yeah. I just did a tranny swap on an FMX and it took 14 quarts.

My C6 with an external cooler takes about 13 quarts. So, your 11.75 quarts for a stock system seems reasonable.

The large amount of fluid assumes you drain the converter and the cooling lines.

Many shops just drop the pan and change only half the fluid. To do it right you have to drain the converter at least and probably the cooler lines.

Good Luck,

On my 79 Ford's C6 with an add on cooler I can put about 13 quarts in it if I also drained the torque convertor.
