    I used a case(12 quarts) when I put my rebuilt tranny in ( 700/241) in my truck. the tranny had been put on a dyno so there was probably already some ATF in the torque convertor.

    to do a filter on a 700r4 takes 5-6 quarts, and the np208 takes 4-5 quarts.

    drop the pan on the tranny and its right there, a big plastic thing. it just slides out, then you need to get the seal out of the pump with a screw driver or something. just don't damage the pump. then just slide a new filter up in there with the seal on the filter.

    i would replace the filter if you are changing the fluid. if it gets cloged, it can't pump any fluid and its not moving. it may even burn it up because not enough pressure to the clutches and lets them slip.

    Be aware , there is a little "O" ring on the filter that may stay in the tranny when you pull the filter out

    Make sure its on the old filter or you will find the trans. does not work properly
    (screwy shifting etc.) after you put in the new one (doubled up "O" rings)

    This advice was given to me by a guy that works at a trans. shop:thumb:

    any auto parts store will have one.

    the reason the screwy shifting happens is because when the pan is tightened up it cracks the filter and it sucks air instead of fluid, so make sure you take the filter seal out of the pump.

    Be advised that ATF comes out of the drain hole of a 208 MUCH faster and with MUCH more force than motor oil out of the oil pan drain during a regular oil change.

    Make damn sure your drain pan is far enough back from the transfer case and that your face is WELL AWAY from the work area when you spin out the plug.

    Ask me how I know.........:deal: :doah:

    Yea I have already experienced that, lol I had the drain pan to close and when I took out the plug the fluid missed the pan by about 1 ft, talk about alot of fluid :)
    ill be more careful this time :)
