Have a 2004 hem Durango 5.7. This day I drained every my fluid in the pan from when the dealership did it. I set up a plug for this reason no filters were changed this time around. Noticed that just 4 Qts. Came out. I placed 5 Qts. The AMSOIL earlier in. Did i overfill? i didnt adjust filters this time. Does the filters hold much fluid?
*

Should be 6 quarts because that the engine!But you proclaimed transmission in the thread? transmission is 16 quarts if ns remember correctly.

When you drain the transmission fluid from the pan only, you get ~6-7 quarts of the 16 quarts in the system. 4 quarts appears a tiny low. You may want to examine you liquid level.

Yes, transmission fluid, not engine oil. I agree is appears low come me too. Only 4 Qts. Drained out. (Pan only) I put 5 ago in.However, now I allow the engine sit off for much more than 2 hours and checked the stick again and it tho reads ~ above the "hot" mark. I have the right to touch it and it feeling room temp if no colder. Should"nt it check out "cold"...? renders me think I put too much in.

Are you checking it v the engine running? The engine need to be running when checking the transmission liquid level.

There is a spot on the stick because that "cold" and "Hot" and also two dots because that each...I thought that meant when the engine is cold and not running it should read cold, mine mistake. I will check it later and follow-up v ya guys. Many thanks for your help.

There"s really no method to fully drain the trans fluid without having the machine right? I"d rather obtain rid of all of it and put in imperial Purple tranny oil. It"ll it is in expensive yet it"s precious the investment specifically if ns drive sorta difficult on mine D a lot.
There"s really no means to totally drain the trans liquid without having the an equipment right? I"d rather gain rid of all of it and also put in royal Purple tranny oil. It"ll be expensive however it"s precious the investment particularly if ns drive sorta tough on mine D a lot.
Unless girlfriend drop the tranny to rebuild that or something, the fluid in the talk converter will not come the end without the flush machine. Are you certain you want to change the stock ATF +4 with imperial purple? The Chrysler spec"d ATF+4 is a fully synthetic tranny fluid already. It"s claimed to be pretty bland good. Ns wouldn"t think there would be as well much benefit doing the switch.

When you inspect the fluid make sure that the Durango"s infection is warm. A couple minutes of driving is helpful to warm it up. Because that the Durango, the speak Convertor filling in either Park or Neutral so that doesn"t matter which one you check it in.

All the info I"ve viewed on royal Purple clues to gift even much more superior to full synthetics. Any type of extra quantity of defense is good if friend don"t drive prefer a 90yr granny, i beg your pardon I"m most definately will most likely never do. Ns don"t abuse my D but then again i don"t infant her either.
Only use Mopar ATF+4 - anything rather you will certainly be acquisition a opportunity of gaining rough gear changes. Amsol is no ATF +4.
Amsoil is not "Mopar" ATF 4?? Is states that right on the bottle as being one of it"s spec"s amongst others?.... But yes, I gain your point. Probably much better to stick with the initial stuff.

Chrysler trannys have been well-known to be quite picky based upon the fluids that space in that - all of their TSB"s save harping on utilizing ATF+4. I have the right to buy a quart the ATF+4 at WalMart because that $3.50 a quart - Amsol needs to be 3 time this price for this reason why not just use what the factory says and also save your $$$ and buy the good stuff because that the crank case.
