Default Re: Dipstick level

Oil level is really subjective. It depends on the condition of the oilman, how much sludge is in it.

A normal oil change takes 4-4.5 qts. So you put in 3-3.5 its on the next oil change and mark the stick with a file notch. Add another qt and mark the stick again.

These engines only take 5 qts when the pan is removed and the dipper tray emptied and cleaned.
