If you have the Teves II system, you turn the key on to activate the ABS pump, have somone hit the brake pedal (or piece of wood pushing from the seat to the pedal) to actuate the pump, then crack the bleeders on the rears.

Fill the transmission until the fluid begins to drain back out of the fill hole (keep the car level when doing this).

I might be mistaken, but I think I remember mine taking about 3 1/4 quarts, plus the bottle of friction modifier. I don't think I spilled any. :o

Like Doug said though...fill it till it's full.

I use the high mileage Valvoline ATF in mine now. It has the friction modifier in it. Use Ford friction modifier otherwise. I believe the official capacity is 3.1 qts but do indeed fill it till it runs out the filler hole.

They recommend stop and go heavy traffic driving. I drove mine to work and back with lots of stop signs and traffic lights for 2 weeks to break it in. Mine had a little groan to it during the break in. My previous CF DF's didn't do that. Now that it's broken in it's hardly noticeable and is almost gone. Let me know if yours does that.
