quarts goes in. . fill it through the speedometer cover. on the top of the
transmission.

I've found that it's damn near impossible to get all of the old oil to
drain, and it never takes the full 2 liters to re-fill. If you don't
use the edge of the fill hole as a guide, but merely dump in 2 liters,
you will be overfilling the tranny.
