Geez, about ready to do my 100,000 mile fluid and filter changes and its a pain in the rear, 16.2qts trans fluid, rear needs 5.5pints gear oil, front needs 3.8, why couldnt they just change the sizes so I need to get 16 quarts, and 5/4 pints even, respectively instead of having to add small amounts at a time to try and get it perfect?(just who I am)...OK, rant over

Alot of fluid bottles have little markers on the side that show oil level in the can/bottle, use 'em. It doesn't have to be perfect, a tenth of a quart over or under isn't going to mean much.

Welcome to my world. Yes, it's a pain in the @$$; no, not everyone owns Alemite oilers (which meter the fluid dispensed); but there are alternatives that can get you in the ballpark. However, if you're ob/comp, I can't help you with that.

I'm talking about the little hashmarks on the bottles that should get you pretty close, assuming the OP can read..

You're joking right? That hatch mark on the dip stick must piss you off bad...:rofl:

Seriously though...2/10s of a quart isn't much...pour it in an call it good. It'll probably leak out anyway :haha:

F*ck that, let's all use improper fractions. Fill your differential with 11/2 pints. :haha

pfft, your worried about 16 quarts and jibberish. I am used to putting over 60 gallons of oil in for a oil change.

60 gallons is at least twice as much as you should be using in a bronco.
yeah that's like 8/4th's

Though I'm rollin with 31.237 gallons, as per my local Ford dealership's instruction.
