The 1997 Suburban has a 5.3L Vortec engine unless you have the 2500 model which is 5.8L. Since you sound like you have an everyday driver it takes 5.75 quarts... If you are chaging the oil yourself and doing filter... Put in 5.5 quarts and crank engine, let it run for 5 min and then check oil via dipstick. Top off the oil based on dipstick reading...You shoudl be 3/4 of the way up the zone between min and max for perfect level. A certain amount of oil always stays in the oil pan and the filter so just filling it with a certain number of quarts on older model cars doesnt work..since the engine has wear and oil needs. Be sure and dont exceed the MAX mark on your dipstick this creates oil OVER pressure and can cause seals to blow out and oil leaks on older vehicles with high mileage. If you want you can use the high mileage oil...it has additives to help seals swell and not leak. But if you arent having oil leaks now and car is running fine no need to change type.
