as far as trans fluid--auto or manual??
engine oil - i run the mobil 1 5w20_5qt oil change jug and ...so 5 qt.
my 01 gt didnt come with a manual when i bought it so i was in the same boat. ive heard 6 qt is what it calls for but that over fills my pan according to my dipstick.
so according to MY dipstick...lol (dipstick).. my 01 gt takes 5 qt

if you have a manual t-5 holds 5.6 pts and the t-45 holds 6.6pts i believe you have the t-45 if its a 2000. dont mark my words though
the automatic 4r70w holds 12.8qts

My t-45 held exactly 3 quarts before it started coming out of the fill hole.. I used Dex III. Nothing special... Didn't want to pay out of my ass for royal purple...

What????

OP, the trans holds about 12qts with the stock pan, but it usually doesn't take nearly that much to refill it depending on what you are doing to it. If you just drop the pan and change the filter, it's only gonna take about 6. If you drop the valve body and drain the converter it will take closer to 8-9.
