47RE Transmission Oil & Filter Change Capacity?
98 Cummins 24 valve, 190K.
Just changed oil and filter in transmission. Filled with 3-1/2 qts Valvoline ATF 4 synthetic. Engine mildly warm. Run thru gears. No oil on dip stick. Added 1/2 qt, still no oil on dip stick. Manual says 4 quarts is supposed to be all that is needed.
I am second owner. Could original owner have put bigger pan on? Is there any other reason for it to need more oil?
