It will take just about six quarts of Dexron III or higher type. I just used Dexron VI and it has never worked better. IMHO, a funnel with a tube spout will make replacing the six quarts much easier. The cannister tank should be filled to within a quarter inch of the top. The caps have a center spindle as a dipstick. The caps can be pulled up and out without worry. Good luck!

As soon as I added fluid, the beeping stopped. I'll bet the reservoir isn't completely full.

Ok you guys are correct. It was low. Barely touching the dipstick. Now I overfilled it. I cycled the jacks a couple times and it blew fluid out the vents on top. It made a mess but did stop. Am I ok?

Looks like your fine. On a fill powergear says cycle five times, then your good. You may want to check for overfill leaks again but your good to go.
