The most important thing about changing your filter is to also drain your torque converter. There is more than half of the total fluid capacity in the converter. Stretch the new gasket slightly and tighten the bolts evenly to only a few foot-pounds until you can feel the gasket start to bulge slighty. The feel is the most critical thing to observe. Torque should be less than 15 foot-pounds. Fill the trans with 3 quarts of fluid ,then run the engine for about 15 to 20 seconds. Then add one more quart start the engine and slowly add the remaining fluid to the bottom mark on the dipstick. The final level should be checked after a test drive and should not top the upper mark. The total amount should be about 6 quarts.
