I did mine this weekend and used 6 qrt's

There are only 2 tools needed, Duct Tape and WD 40. If moves and isnt supposed to use the duct tape. If it dosn't move and is supposed to, use the WD 40!

I let mine sit overnight with the pan off and replaced 8 quarts

Be sure to use ATF+4

I used 6 quarts but only let it drain for about 30min. It was messier than hell though.

That was the reason i let mine sit overnight. It wouldnt stop dripping so I decided to wait a while, forgot about it, and drained 2 more quarts overnight. There's method to my madness.

Question should you use RTV to seal it back up along with the gasket? I have heard yes and no.

I used the gasket and a thin film of RTV around the bolt holes
