Default Amount and filter?

I was wondering what a good brand of tranny filter to get and were I can get it, I'm plaining a big list what to do on my next day off and would like to do this. I'm hoping autozone or pepboys sells them so it be easy for me.

My other question is how much tranny fluid do I need? My car didn't come with a manual so I don't know how much a 01 Se takes in tranny fluid, and is there any brands that people recommend for that?

When I changed my filter, it took almost eight quarts to refill.

Same with me, each time I have changed it on my car, or others, I have used about 7.5 quarts to refill.

I dunno if Autozone sells Delco filters. NAPA probably does. If you can't find a Delco, I would recommend a WIX brand filter.

WIX 58837 Auto Tran Filter, comes with a new gasket.....Otherwise Delco'* good too....

And about 7.5 qts of a good quality fluid. I switched my old 95 SSEi to M1 Syn trans fluid and it was a night and day difference in how the trans acted and ran....
