Hello again, the Turbo 400 hold 9 1/2 qts. with deep pan, 7 1/2 qts. without deep pan. I plan to notch the dip stick (my own idea :laugh: ) to make it easier to read. I found the imformation by using If you all have any more ideas about the dip stick, or how much the oil cooler adds, I would like to hear them. My eye's are not as good as they used to be. :disapprove: Thanks, Terry

Hi Terry6, a cooler would hold about a qt or alittle less, I know about the old eyes seem every year its alittle less. :eek: How about marking the line with finger nail polish, my concern with notching the dipstick is viberation may cause it to break off at the notch, maybe I worry to much :evil: Good luck :) :cool: :bleh: :approve:

Thanks Gary B, that helps me a lot. The finger nail polish is something I didn't think about. Everytime I check the trans. oil I ask my wife if she can see where we are on the stick. And she pulls out the flashlight and we argue about where the oil is on the stick. :laugh: The notch that I was thinking of would be about 1/6" off the side of the stick, at the full line. I know what you mean about being a worrier, my brother thinks I worry to much, but when he ran out of water in the desert a few weeks ago all he had to do was come to his older brother to get what he needed. :8ball: :laugh: I like the polish idea. Take care and Thanks again, Terry :cool:
