Maybe, perhaps not. Counts on all at once capacity. If the crankshaft is whipping that yes. Yet I"m not reasoning an extra quart would execute that v a 5-6 quart capacity.

Thanks for the fast reply. I tend to acquire overly anal and also concerned about things. Specifically now that i"ve determined to just keep truckin" with this and avoid a automobile payment. I"ll just keep doing 5 1/2 quarts choose normal.Thumbs up!-Markus
I"d still examine the stick. If Jiffy Lube slaps a new filter on while it"s quiet draining due to the fact that they room in a rush there"s her 1/2 quart anyways. Ns pull the drainpipe plug and also filter, go perform something else because that a while, climate finish. I fill the brand-new filter prior to spinning it on too. I generally put roughly 5 quarts in, fire the up, turn it off and also let it sit, climate check and also top off. I understand that sounds like 8 extra steps yet whatever it helps me sleep in ~ night lol.

Big picture I wouldn"t sweat it. A lot of of men hit the paid turn off milestone and decide they have to fix every squeak and rattle, rebuild the van from the soil up...I doubt you would be wherein you space with it if girlfriend didn"t already take an excellent care that it. My attitude has been something choose run it/ride it/race it/fix it once you break it with whatever I"ve own from mowers come motorcycles.

5-1/2 quarts isn"t going to cause any issues v that 5.7 - You finish up roughly 5-1/2 quarts quiet if girlfriend prefill the oil filter at the moment of oil change. No worries!
The hand-operated on mine claimed 5 qts. I"d fill the filter and also then intake the rest in v the oil fill on peak of the valve cover. Never had any type of issues in 150k miles. A tiny extra won"t ache anything. Go as well much and also you"ll more than likely fill up the PCV and also have come clean that out. However 0.5 qt more than likely doesn"t matter.
