Fill it until it starts coming out the hole you are filling it up by and then it is full.

Just changed the fluid in mine this past weekend. It's almost exactly two quarts. A hand pump comes in handy.

How convenient, going to do this in a few hours and had a few questions, the easiest way to put the fluid in there? Hand pump? Home made?

I use this, works better than a hand pump.
