Auto Transmission capacity

Just got my 91.5 Power Ram on the road, and I will be doing a tranny service this weekend.

Just wondering how much ATF I will need?

Thanks.

if its just a pan service i.e. drop the pan clean it new gasket and bolt it back on its 4 qrts.

last week i did a pan service and i yanked a cooler line off up top and ran it in neutral shut down added fluid ran it over and over to flush the system as best i could in doing so i used 12 qts or 22 pints as w350_ 1992 said. i ended up blowing more out that i expected and needed three more qts.


but my fluid was spent and my pan was full of sludge my tranny is on the downward spiral . so i had to flush what i could out. good luck

Ok, thanks. I don't have a manual yet, figured I'd shoot this thread out.

Much appreciated.

Thanks.

there is nothing wrong with that. best to ask and get it right the first time that go at it blindly. anyone who gives you a hard time about asking a question has no business giving advice hahah. not everyone has the same mechanical aptitude . some on here are experts in their own right and some are novices . i persoanly know more about aircooled vw's than i do about diesels. when in doubt ask about...

Jonny, what symptoms was your tranny giving you if any? what caused you to do the service or was it just time for a PM? mine was slipping a little bit when i took off it got going great i would let off the throttle coast a second or two (like making a turn out of the drive way) and then it slipped when i hit the pedal again just for a second and then the thing would hook up. (plus the fluid looked dark and i saw metal bits in it)

my 87 ram 150 gasser has 77k on it and it will do than when i round a certian turn too sharply. when i get her stright in hit it is scavenges for fluid, even topped off. she doesnt leak fluid at all. it will slip for a second and hook up. wierd stuff.

If its a np205 it takes 4.5 pts of 10w-30 engine iol. If its the np241 t-case it takes 6 pts of dexron III ATF. Thats wat the book says anyway.

My shift into 2nd is kinda slow so I adjusted the band but that didn't help. I figured new fluid and filter would help because I don't know when or if its ever been changed. If I drive like a grandpa it shifts ok.

ok, How would I tell which transfer case is which?

Did the early non-intercooled engines have a diferent t-case?
