The Tremec fluid is almost clear. And it doesn't smell horrible like ATF.
Tremec must have changed their tune regarding using their fluid in the TR-6060. When I emailed them a year or so back, they recommended the oem ATF over the Tremec fluid.

Can anyone help me out here? Which is it? I took a pick of the black bottle a while ago, is it still the same recommendation from GM? I want to put what’s recommended while still under warranty. And thanks for all the info! I’m going to attempt this in my driveway on stands, that should be interesting haha

88861800 is what the 2016/2017 owners manual states and what the 2016/2017 service manual states as the correct OEM transmission fluid for the TR6060 manual transmission.

Hey All,
I don't mean to beat this to death. But, can someone clarify / verify the required amount of fluid needed to do this flush and refill? The reason I ask is because the OP states in the (awesome) instructions that you'll need 3.65 qts. However, JCunningham (post 117) stated that it takes 5.2 Qts. I just want to make sure that I'm not missing something..

also, are you suppose to fill it, start / drive the car, then go back and check the fluid to see if any/some was consumed through the nooks/crannies?

Thanks everyone!!

If you want to drain and fill, that's ~4qts.


If you want to FLUSH (drain/fill/drain/fill) in order to get the most fluid exchanged (out of the cooler and lines), then you need more.


The fill and drive is for the diff. You don't use that technique for the Transmission.

Thanks Matthew!!! And to all the others for great instruction, tips and tricks.
I'm now looking forward to getting this completed.
