How much transmission fluid does a car hold?

I’m preparing to change out the fluids in my vehicle, but I don’t know how much to buy of each different fluid. What’s a standard amount of transmission fluid for a car to hold?

Changing your car fluids is a standard part of every car maintenance schedule. Luckily, you can look in your owner’s manual to find out exactly how much transmission fluid your car holds. That being said, most cars hold between 12 and 16 quarts of transmission fluid.
Remember, you should change your transmission fluid every 50,000 to 100,000 miles—depending on your car. Manual car owners may even need to change it more frequently. If you forget to change your fluids for too long, your engine could even give out on the road!
