Re: oil capacity nissan td 27 engine
Hi! What I've done in the past is purchase two 5 litre containers of the correct grade oil then carefully topped up until just showng below Max level on dipstick I run the car briefly to check for leaks and to fill up new oil filter I let it settle on level ground with engine switched off then top up slowly to correct level, Oh I think you'll find 6 litres is the Norm!

With or without a filter? Have you lost the dipstick? Fill it to the full mark, about 6 liters without filter, plus 1 litre to fill the oil filter. Run engine then check levels again. Try not to overfill the sump.
Cut the side out of a 10 litre oil container to catch the used oil.
Use a plastic shopping bag around the filter to catch most of the oil when you maneouvre the filter out of the engine compartment. About 6 liters new oil, diesel 15w40 dino oil is what I use to refill both sump and oil filter, about 5.3 in sump, the rest in the filter. Run engine and then recheck on dipstick after engine has been stopped for 5 minutes to allow drain back to sump.great thing is that you don't have to jack up the vehicle to get under it just to do the oil, but it makes it easier to do the filter if you remove the left front wheel and go through the rubber side curtains between the wheel well and the engine bay to get to the filter, especially if the engine is hot.
Hi, your engine oil capacity for your 2.8 is 7.8 litres of oil including new filter,when you have done this start car and wait until oil light go's out this will indicate that the oil filter is full with oil,turn off engine and check oil level on dipstick again.
hope this helps you.
