2.64 pints (1.25 liters). But to get it out requires taking some things apart. I was able to pump out about a quart of the old to get a quart of Royal Purple in. Temporarily, I figured that was better than nothing. Shouldn't hurt to replace fluid, regardless of miles.

i just took my whole t9 out and tipped it to the side to empty out all the fluid.

fluid pump is probably easier.
