My friend has a 2002 Malibu and wants to know how many quarts of transmission it needs

Asked by stonedsquirrel Jul 09, 2019 at 11:24 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Malibu FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

how many quarts of transmission fluid it needs after flushing?

1 Answer


Put in the same amount that came out. If you drop the pan and change the filter, it will take about five quarts even though the entire system holds more than twice that amount, including the torque converter. Buy your fluid starting with a gallon, it's cheaper than by the quart. Top it up slowly so it is not overfilled. Check level while idling in Park or whatever it says on the dipstick. Use the correct fluid.
