So I’m slowly doing drain/refills on my 1988 XJS (1987 manufactured TH400) now that I’ve installed a new deep pan with a drain plug.
Everywhere I read, our TH400 w/ deep pan has a 6 qt capacity (not counting what’s in torque convertor). But every time I open the drain plug, I only get 4 qts out, and adding 4 qts puts it right up to the correct dipstick reading.
Could 2 quarts really be sticking around in the pan? Or could the dispstick be incorrect and I’m running 2 qts low? It’s a B&M Steel Deep Pan with drain plug on bottom at back. And I put the front of the car up.
I’m hoping PO didn’t put in a wrong dipstick? The end of the dipstick has EAC8310 on it, but I can’t find any reference to that part number.
