    5M-GE 2.8GT

    Hi,

    Anyone familiar wz this 5M-GE ?

    1) Does this engine require more than 4 litres of engine oil ?

    I ask this bcuz my foreman just put a 4 litre and check the dipstick and he said ok. He's yooung chap wz a little experience plus never saw or mingle wz a 5M-GE before, i think the engine is older than him....hehe

    2) Does this auto transmission require only 2 litres of ATF fluid for a
    normal service ?
    How much does it need for a full flush ?

    5qt of ATF for a flush too.

    I should add that the ATF flush assumes you are going to lose some in the flushing process.

    You can use Type-F fluid in a Dexron/Mercon app...it will just make it shift a bit firmer, because it does not have the friction modifier package of D/M.

    These so called "racing" ATF's are just Type F with a custom dye added.
