How much transmission fluid does a 1993 Ford F150 need?

I am going to change the automatic transmission fluid and my Haynes manual says I need to add 17 quarts to refill it. Can this be right? People in the parts store said it was only ten, maximum but didn't seem sure.... Thanks.

then you only need 5 quarts.

it holds a total of 10. five quarts in the pan %26amp; five quarts stay in the torqueconverter.How much transmission fluid does a 1993 Ford F150 need?4.9 2wd it is going to be 5.25 quarts of fluid becuase your not dumpping out the conveter.How much transmission fluid does a 1993 Ford F150 need?tim b hit it right on'How much transmission fluid does a 1993 Ford F150 need?17 qt`s ? Where are you supposed to put the other 10 ? assuming you drained the converter. Haynes does not use spell check, hence 17 qt`s . If all you do is drain the pan, change the filter. Then you should need no more than 4-5 qt`sHow much transmission fluid does a 1993 Ford F150 need?If you drop the pan than these guys are right. A good rule of thumb is to watch what you lose and replace it with a quart less, check fluid and fill accordingly.

However, MAKE SURE YOUR REPLACEMENT FLUID MATCHES WHAT YOU DRAINED. Mixing two different fluids is a recipe for disaster, especially in a Ford.
