Quick ATF flush question

721 Views 1 Reply 1 Participant Last post by  Lol
Hey all.

Drained the fluid and dropped the pan to change the filter. Got exactly 7 quarts (capacity is 6.7).

Is some metallic residue expected on the magnet? Wasn’t a lot.

Lastly: (1) Do I fill it until it drips out the full port with the transmission at operating temperature or cold? (2) Do I fill and wait to plug the full port until it seeps out with the gears being cycled?

Planning to overfill it after all is said and done to 7.5-8 quarts

Finding conflicting information on the tube and here.

Thanks in advance.

Oh yeah, how did those that have changed the filter get that ring gasket with the metal base out (that the filter neck presses into)?


Found a helpful link I must’ve missed.

Guess I’ll fill it cold and follow this GM approved fluid measuring technique before capping it off at operating temp

Just need to still figure out this filter neck gasket
