T45 capacity is 6.6 pints. Let us know how you like the Mobil 1 ATF.

If overfilled you will likely have ATF blowing out the vent near the top of the transmission. With the car level, put the ATF into the fill hole until the fluid level is just below the fill hole. This should be very close to the stated capacity.

T45 capacity is 6.6 pints. Let us know how you like the Mobil 1 ATF. I have it in my 01, noticed easier shifting once I put it in. planning on draining it in a few thousand miles to see how it fairs, On my car it said 3.6 qts. when i put in that much I was about a inch below the fill plug. left it there figured that was the spec so that must be the fill level, have not seen any bad points to the mobil one yet.
