2011 6R80 - number of quarts after filter change?

Post by n2xlr8n » Thu Oct 04, 2018 11:05 am

How many quarts of fluid do I need when changing the filter on my 2011 6R80 tranny?

Anyone have a solid answer?

I know where the level must be, running and hot- I have no idea (and I'm not trusting the usual suspects online) of the quantity of fluid.

AT Gurus?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:

7.5 quarts.

I think the reason many screw this up is that there is a valve that prevents oil from flowing from the sump/pan until transmission temp is over 150* F or so.

After the filter change I added 3 quarts, idled the engine, moved the shifter through the gears 2-3 times, then added 3 more. Went for a very slow drive to get the tranny up to temp and it took a final 1.5 quarts.
