Question about 1989 Suzuki Samurai

3 Answers

Just a question

I have a 1987 Samurai with what I thought was a 1.3 engine. The 1.3 manual states the oil capacity is 3.5 liters. This engine requires 5 quarts to bring it to the fill line. Could it have the 1.6 engine?

The book says that the 1.6 requires 4.7 liters,which is equal to 5 quarts,so I would say,yes you have the 1.6

Please rate this solution.

Not if it is the stock engine that came in the vehicle (to my knowledge, the Samurai was only available with the 1.3L in 87).

The capacity for the 1.3L engine should be 3 and 7/10 quarts including the recommended filter. If its the stock engine and is taking 5 qts to fill it, perhaps the oil pan was altered/changed?

You are using metric and imperial units.. you need to convert too one standard.... be that as it may you generally add a litre for what the oil filter holds as well

What type of oil do i need fot cts 2003


Regular 5W30 oil will work just fine in the '03 CTS. Your owners manual will tell you to stay away from any other viscosity (5W20, 10W30, etc) because they will be either too thick or too thin. It does not require synthetic as it is equipped with a 3.2 liter engine that was more or less derived from the Catera, but just didn't break as much. They only ran that engine for a year and started using the 3.6 liter VVT (variable valve timing) which does require synthetic oil (5W30 Mobil 1).
