    No way the 700r4 is alot more than 5 Qts.
    Maybe you mean when you do a filter change.
    The real FACTS will follow I hope.

    The 700R4 is 5 qts. becausae when i added my deep pan I put in 8 and its supposed to add 3. This is w/o changing the fliud in the torque converter and with a filter change

    Factory manual says:

    700R4... 10 pints (5 qts.)
    208..... 10 pints
    Rear end depends on the ring gear size...
    8 1/2"=4.2 pints
    8 7/8"=4.5 pints (3.5pts 80-82)
    9 3/4"=6.0 pints
    10 1/2"=6.5 pints (7.2 for Dana)
    12 1/2"=26.8 pints

    I thinks you are missing some words.............
    Like the refill capacities when you do a filter change on the 700r4.
    The TQ Conv. and the Tranny, have a capacity or over 20 pints(10 qts.), and I don't think the TQ Conv. will hold
    10 pints (5 qts.) !

    Because the torque converters do not have drain plugs anymore makes it a moot point. When you pull the pan and refill, it takes 5 qts. I just did this prior to driving to Virginia on vacation. 5 qts to fill it. So says Chiltons, GM factory manual and me....

    Hey that's fine by me ! But your mixing 5 new qts. of tanny juice with 5 qts. of old tranny juice.
    That's like changing your engine oil, and not changing the oil filter, sort of anyway............
    Let me state it a differnt way the capacity of the 700r4 system is like 10-12 Qts.
    I think this is correct.

    Because if it not stated as a FACT, or an opinion, then what is it ?
    Why do pleope asnwer a ? with an opinion and or experince, and don't tell the reader that ?. Is it implied that all
    answers are opinion and experice ? I want Facts to the answers, research, data, not guesses, verifable so
    if I have that perticualr Blazer in my garage I know for a fact that it is the correct answer. If you don't have that answer just say so, You and I know that GM may have done things differntly in the 60-70-80-90's say so, like your milage will very,.... ect.
    Be as specific as you can to answer the ? If you use word like "all" be prepared to back it up.
    Sorry that I can't exspess my self to well of the internet, my grammer and spelling suck, I will be the first to admit
    that.

    Please don't take this the wrong way, it's not intended to flame anyone.
    I will be happy to discuess this with anyone, almost anytime............
    Thanks alot

    I don't mean to steer away from the topic of this thread but just to reply to the Executioner I think all message boards are considered a great way to get others opinons and or experinces on certain topics. Facts are just raw data with nothing attached to it. If fact finding helps you assure your self that the opinon you just were givin is accurate then by all means whip out that specifications book and look up the raw data/facts.
    Speaking for my self I get further on opinon and experiances than facts. Reading a manuals interpetaion on how to perform a task, to me, is MUCH harder than having a bud tell you how he did it with out any negitive results.
    Everyone is different and I respect your opinon as much as the next guy! [​IMG]
    I do learn from facts but they are mostly forgotin and the experiance is rememberd.

    Executioner...you are the main reason I don't say much on here anymore, you argue about everything like nobody knows anything but you. Everytime I see a post from you I know you are going to ask a question then argue with each and every person that gives you an answer. If you know so darn much, why ask questions?
    I have gone through every book I have , even the factory manual for the 700R4, the REFILL quantity of Dextron is 10 pints or 5 quarts. Call any tranny shop they will tell you the same, REFILL is 10 pints. The only way to drain it completely is to remove the tranny and converter. Course knowing you , you would probably lean the Blazer against the garage on it's tailgate just to prove a point....

    To be honest, I have no idea. But I am sure there are others here that know it right off the top of the head. Or I could search through the book and find it for you.
