if i have heard correctly 3 quarts will do, i have b&M trick shift fluid, and regualr atf works. I have also heard that it goes where the shifter sits, unless u can get ahold of a machine that pumps it in. So just take off the shifter and dump it in. Probably want to make sure you shift through the gears slowly too. Correct me if i am wrong anyone.

Holds 3 1/5th quarts and 4 ounces of friction modifier. (same as rear end addative.) I would reccomend that you use the GM Syncromesh Tranny Fluid. There is a fill tube on the side, use a rubber hose squirt it in.

just add all the fluid and leave the filler plug open, and wait til it just starts to spill out a lil???
