The owner's manual says 2.1 qts, but I recently drained and refilled (my '97) and it took a little more than that, I'd say about 2.5 qts. The dip stick is difficult to read (always check with motor warm and running) since it goes so far down and gets covered with fluid going in and out of the tube.
