how many quarts of atf

How many quarts to fill up a turbo 400 tranny, I snagged 5 from my work, and some lucas tranny fix, think that should be enough?(well I'll find out soon) also I got every other fluid imagenable so I can get the cherokee all finished up this weekend, Should have some wheeling pics up by next weekend if everything goes alright.

fill from dry, or what. i think its about 12 if the t-converter is drained. i would prolly stay away from that lucas oil thickiner crap, unless you got some real problems your tryin to cover up

well with the thickend oil theres gonna be less friction and heat. what condition is the tranny, if is about to go thats one thing. but if you have it completly dry u must done somethin, t-converter? theres no reason to use it, your just gonna make drag with thick oil, and yes, ,there gonna claim a lot

all I did was swap trannys, I think the torque converters still full, I didn't take the converter off when I removed the tranny.

The TH400 holds about 11 quarts of ATF. Since your not sure if the tc is still full or not, the easiest way to do this is to just fire up the rig and bring it up to normal operating temp's.

Add a couple of quarts and then shift thru all the gears, including reverse. Leave it running the whole while, and just keep checking your dipstick until you reach the full mark.

Whatever you do, DON"T overfill or the top of your dipstick tube will look like a rabid dog.
