The exact capacities and specs are listed in your owners manual... I use Mobil1 75w/90 for the tranny/xcase/diffs. Just open the fill hole, open the drain, let it all come out, plug the drain, then fill. Easiest maintenance you can do on your truck (other than changing the air filter!).

You know it. You only make that mistake once. Damn stealerships like to get that 12mm allen hole nice and tight.

for the 5VZ-FE the MT capacity is 2.3 qt for the 4x4 and 2.7 qt for the 2x4.

mine's a 99, but i believe they're the same. check your manual just to be sure.
