Hello, I'm going to remove my transmission fluid and swap both filters. When I refill it, how much does it need? I see in this YouTube video he seems to have used 5 quarts (timestamp 11:44). The owners manual doesn't say anything. Thanks

Basically, it needs as much as it takes until it's at the proper level. For some people it's 5 quarts, for other's it took more or less.

The owners manual doesn't cover it because it's considered a dealer only service because it's complicated, compared to topping off engine oil or coolant.

In the video he says "keep doing it a bunch of times"; you have to add a some, then check it, add a little more, check again, etc. until it's there.

Start low and work your way up.
