It"s probably going come take around 12 qts without the deep pan. Placed in 5 qts, have all your bottles of fluid open. Girlfriend don"t want to be fiddling approximately opening bottles of liquid while it"s running. ~ the 5 qts, begin it up, add the liquid as it"s running. The trans can suck it up faster than girlfriend can add the fluid, for this reason don"t hesitate come just negative them every in best away. Obtain 11 qts in it, then go inside and put it into every equipment a few times. Add a bit at a time after ~ that until it"s in ~ the around the lower finish of the 2 present on the stick. Go journey the car. Once you get earlier recheck and also fill come the full mark. Girlfriend don"t want to go to the complete mark ideal away due to the fact that if you execute it might come to be overfilled when it heats up because of expansion that the fluid.

I didn"t even think around a dry converter, since the people we acquire are pre-lubed. If yours looks dry inside, then by all way add a qt to it.

You"ll be fine with a half a qt. Don"t worry around it. I recognize shops that run dry ones and say they don"t have problems. Many converters the don"t have actually some oil in them at least have actually assembly lube, for this reason they important aren"t dry.

That"s what go in it with a standard size converter. I more than likely should have asked what diameter converter he"s using. We"ve rebuilt and also installed literally hundreds of these in the 23 year I"ve been open. Check out my website http://www.mikes-transmissions.com/. I"ve to be rebuilding trannys for 34 years, one owner because that 23. If you desire to check out who i am, click on the YouTube video link top top the website. I"m the male in the start of the video. It likewise shows a couple of shots of the shop, among my techs and also customer testimonials.

My wife"s car with the 700 calls out 21.6 pints capacity, for overhaul, so simply under 11 quarts........

What type of auto is it? A 700 behind a V8 v a complete size converter take away 12 Qts. OK, provide or take a 1/2 a Qt. That"s why I only said to go all the means to 11 then include as necessary. Yet you better have 12 qts there or you"ll be quick on fluid.

Well, her trans will certainly take less fluid. Placed in 5 qts, begin motor, walk to 9 qts(including the 1/2 you placed in the converter)and start checking the stick. If friend don"t check out anything on the stick at all include another qt. Don"t engage it until you see fluid on the stick. Interact it a couple of times into all the gear positions then add as needed to gain it top top the reduced line top top the stick(cold mark). Walk for a check drive and also when you return recheck and include as required to the higher line(hot mark).

The trans is no going to be really fussy about the fluid level. It have the right to be a quart low and work. Being over complete can be an ext of a problem. Gain it close, journey it till it is warm and check it in neutral through the engine running. Include fluid come suit.
Mike, mine wife"s car is a "93 Caddy Fleetwood RWD ( over-dressed Caprice) i was quoting the business manual for the capacity.

Bill, your wifes vehicle must have a slightly smaller sized converter. 12-14 qts is what we placed in relying on pan depth because that 4L60(700), 4L60E, 4L65E with full size converters(12 inch).

Yeah Mike, that can be the reason.I was wondering if the transmission may be somewhat various in a vehicle with the trailer package ?? it does have actually a 3.73 behind end. Was wondering if the trans might be a heavy duty type, if over there is together a point (?)
Bill, It more than likely does have at the very least an outside cooler added to the system and also maybe various accumulator springs in it for an ever before so slighty firmer shift. Remember most Caddy owners intend a smooooooth shift :>)
