3.5 or 5 quarts of oil? How do I know for sure?

I've heard that you're supposed to put 5 quarts of oil in a car, but I've also heard that for my 2004 Kia Rio, you're only supposed to put 3.5 quarts. How do I know for sure?

When you change your oil, add new oil one quart at a time till it reads full on the dipstick, then start it, let the oil filter fill up, then turn it off and add what you need to reach the full mark again. That way you will have the exact amount you need and will know for the next time as well!!

Add 3 quarts, then start checking the dip stick. Add extra until you're within range.

What type of motor oil does a 2001 Kawasaki 1500 classic use. and how much does it take to change it


you can use 10w30 or 20w50 motor oil. in any bike I`ve owned from a 72 Honda 350 to a 88 Goldwing 1500 and serviced bikes into 2004 I`ve used 20w50 Castrol motor oil without any problems at all. the amount your bike will need is marked on the case where you put the oil in. I think its about 2-2.5 quarts with an oil filter change.

Some cars have a oil level sensor in the sump for people like you. The sensor tells the cpu to shut down the engine to prevent damage. Something like a low oil shut down on a small generator set

2004 Rodeo, 103,000 miles. no oil leaks so I guess its burning oil. Oil is maybe a qt. low after 1000 since change. Engine still sounds fine but I don't know what a new engine sounds like since I bought...


if you are using a quart of oil every 1000miles,that is NORMAL FOR A MODERN ENGINE.thats why they last so much longer than the old technology.you could try 20/50 oil when you next change as that will help.but worry when it gets to pint every 350 miles.

How minny quarts of oil dose a 96 olds aurora hold


A typical automobile holds 4-5 quarts of oil.....Depends on the size of motor. If changing yourself, Drain out all oil, change filter, put oil plug back in. Put 3- 31/2 quarts back into car. put oil cap on and start car. Let run for 2-3 minutes then shut back off. Wait for a few. Pull out dipstick wipe, put back in then pull out a second time...Now you know how much you need to top off level.
