Subject: Transmission Fluid Capacity
IP: Logged

Message:
I am getting ready to drop my transmission pan and change the filters, how much fluid will it take to fill the trany back up.

Im not interested in flushing, as with every vehilcle i have had, all I have ever done is change the sump filter and then add fluid. Never had a failure.

I believe I have the transmission with the internal spin on filter.

thanks in advance

Truck info would be helpful. :) Even more helpful if you know the tranny model. It should be listed on the sticker in your glove box.

Go LOL some more, bigcman, while reading the following:
OK. Anybody know what engine/transmission combinations were available for a 2002 Dakota 4x4?
The owner does not know, and he refuses to call his local Dodge service department to find out.

That doesn't help much, bigcman. There were about 3 or 4 different trannies for that year I think. Check the sticker in your glovebox... 45RFE? What is your engine size?

Hopefully this will help you. I copied it from the AMSOIL application guide for your year. "Total Fill" specifies if you do an engine flush (add two quarts to the number if you ever do) or otherwise bone-dry. If you are just going to drop the pan, it is probably more along the lines of the "Initial Fill". I'd get a couple extra quarts just in case though. I think most Dakota transmission have two filters. A pan filter and a spin-on filter. My 45RFE does.

Automatic Transmission, A45RFE 2WD Initial Fill..........5.5 quarts[2][3]
Automatic Transmission, A45RFE 4WD Initial Fill..........6.6 quarts[4][5]
Automatic Transmission, 44RE Initial Fill..........4.0 quarts[6]
Automatic Transmission, 46RE Initial Fill..........4.0 quarts[6]
Automatic Transmission, 545RFE 2WD Initial Fill..........5.5 quarts[6][7]
Automatic Transmission, 545RFE 4WD Initial Fill..........6.6 quarts[8][9]
Automatic Transmission, 42RE Initial Fill..........4.0 quarts[10]
Automatic Transmission, Total Fill
42RE..........10.0 quarts
45RFE..........14.0 quarts
46RE..........10.0 quarts
Manual Transmission, NV1500..........4.6 pints
Manual Transmission, NV3500 2WD..........4.9 pints
Manual Transmission, NV3500 4WD..........4.2 pints

Good luck!!

bigcman, there are some jerks who prowl this forum. Just ignore them.
However, keep in mind when you ask for help on an open forum such as this, details are important. Just like we couldn't tell you how much oil your engine takes without knowing which engine you have, we cannot tell you how much transmission fluid you need without knowing type or model of transmission, among other things. And often there is a significant difference in fill quantities between 4x4 and 4x2 because of fluid cooler configurations, etc, again, depending on which transmission you have.
Old Grumpy's flippant remark about the Dodge service department actually has some merit. If you provide them with your VIN, they can tell you exactly which transmission you have, and then you can take it from there.
