    2000 Chevy Silverado Manual Transmission Fluid Capacity

    Sup, I have a 2000 Chevy Silverado with the 4.3 V6 and manual transmission. I am planning on changing my transmission fluid tomorrow but having difficulty finding how much exactly it takes to fill it after it has been drained. Does anybody know? I have read on one post somebody said 2.0 quarts and then somebody else said 3.0 quarts??

    You just fill it up until it reaches the fill plug. Buy a few bottles and return what you don't use

    I just overfilled it then I lowered it to the ground and let the excess spill out. Took about 2-3 quarts.

    Yea. Or look in the owners manual for the capacity, or search online.

    The NV3500 5 speed trans (has all aluminum case) takes 2.2 quarts of Synchromesh trans fluid and the rear diff takes 2.1 quarts of 75W90 synthetic gear oil. Fill the trans level with the bottom of the fill hole but only fill the rear diff until the fluid level is about 15mm below the fill hole per the GM service manual.
