96´ Transmission - Refill / Oil - Amount ??? help please

Hi there.

It would be great, if i get a little help please ...

I had changed my Tranny Oil on my 1996 Mustang V6 , 3.8 Automatic. They drained the complete "old" Oil amount, out of the Converter + Pan and cleand the Pan, put new Oil Filter back on.

... but

There is no way to check on my ATF - Oil Dipstick, if there is really enough in it ???

... because it always shows, there is to much in it ....

They got 13 Liters in, so because of the Dipstick is showing to much, they took 0,8 Liter out and like i told, the dipstick is Once again still showing to much !???

So it would be great, if somebody can tell me, the correct ATF - Fluid amount in Liters for my 1996 Mustang Torque Converter and Pan Refill, so that my tranny feels great and runs without Problems ...

Thank you very much
and have a great ride with your Baby´s !!!

Hey Sabrinachen,

Are you checking your tranny while it's hot in neutral & running?

According to the Haynes bible it is 13.9 qts which sounds like a lot but translates as 13.1 litres and yes it should be checked engine running at operating temperature. Hope that helps
