Default Q about my transmission?

How can I find out what type of transmission my 2004 5.7 4x4 ram has?

Thank you sir for the help. So, would that take 6 quarts to service it out?

If all you're doing is a drain and fill, that's about right. Don't forget to fill the cooler return filter before putting the pan back on.

Something you need to remind your dealer or servicer to do. Local dodge dealer didn't change remote filter on mine twice until I asked them if they did it.
