1996-2000 AX4S - Vulcan 12.2 Qts / 11.6 Ltrs AX4N - Vulcan 13.5 / 12.8 AX4N - Duratec / SHO 13.4 / 12.7 AX4N - Duratec / SHO 13.4 / 12.7 2001-2007 AX4S - Vulcan (n/a after 2003) 12.2 Qts / 11.6 Ltrs These capacity specifications are if the transmission is totally empty, and here's the clincher for us average types: including the torque converter and radiator tank. For us average types, even when doing a transmission fluid / filter change, do not end up with an empty torque converter. When you pull the transmission pan for the fluid/filter change, you end up with 4-6 quarts on average. The rest is still up inside the torque converter. Measure what you drained and start with refilling that amount to put back in to return levels back to normal. CREDIT: Copied and reprinted from Ccoach on
