I can't find my service manual anyplace and I'm changing my tranny fluid. Anyone know the capacity for a '96 OBW 5spd and the quantity between the L and F marks on the dipstick?

Thanks!!!

I think 4 quarts will be fine. You'll probably have a little extra.

Great, thanks! Any idea on the dipstick marks? I don't want to over fill and make my seals leak or nuthin.

thanks

Uh, just to put my mind at ease . . . when you say "tranny fluid" you do mean gear oil, right?!!

Haynes states 3.7 qts of API GL-5 SAE 80W-90 (although I used Red Line 75W-90ns and love the results.)

Just put three-and-a-half quarts in, let it settle, then keep checking level with the dipstick as you top it up.

Correct, I do mean gear oil. Sorry I've never owned an auto so tend not to make the distinction in my vernacular.

Yeah, I've been doing the add and check thing, I just wanted to speed things up a bit since the gear oil is so thick and I don't know if the marks are a full quart or less then that.

Thanks
