I ordered the Camaro trans pan with wide mouth filter today. My local dealership will be doing the install but I have a question. How much fluid can I expect to be used to replace what comes out and to top off the deeper pan? I have a fear that it wont get filled back up high enough because they'll put in what the "book" says for a G8 and they wont remember the fact that they just put a Camaro pan on.

The Camaro and G8 service manuals both say the same thing. Approx. 6.7 qts. I would error on about 8 being needed to be safe.

Or the dealer could always use the fluid level plug to tell it is full ;)

You're going to be fine. The pan can be fit into place with some fluid already in it. There is no trans dipstick, only a fill plug. The final check of fluid level will be done with the car running on the hoist at temperature with the plug out.

That's exactly my concern. Instead of actually checking it, they will just put in what the "manual" says and call it good.

I'm pretty sure I put 7.5 qts in when I did mine a month ago.

Well...............they said they put 6 qts in. Hope that's enough! What are the signs of the fluid not being topped off correctly.........just in case?

You'll slip in 1st & 2nd gear. It will start to slip around 5500 rpm. I guess the other way would be to put the car up on jackstands, level the pan & check for yourself.

Do you have a new stall to go with the Camaro pan and filter?

I would guess around 1-1.5 qts low. I'm pretty sure I added 7.5 qts on mine with the camaro pan

Stock stall still.

I cant believe they didn't top it off right. They know how to check that stuff and they said they checked it. Who knows though.
