You can easily determine capacity by changing the oil, with filter. After adding three quarts, start and run the engine, then carefully fill it 'till it is full. Wait at least one minute between each time you add more oil so it has time to drain into the pan. When it reads full you will know the exact amount needed. Write it down and know it forever!! Offhand I believe it's closer to four than three.

The mitchell automotive manual says if changing your filter, 4.5 quarts. Without filter, 4.0 quarts.

    I just changed the oil in my wife's 1997 Toyota Tercel with automatic trans and A/C. I used a Fram PH4967 filter and put 3 quarts of Mobile 1 5W-30 in and checked it after running it a few minutes. It looked full so after double checking it, I let it run some more and checked again, still full - right on the F. I drove it down to the car wash and and back and checked again, still full. I don't know where these folks are getting 4.5 quart capacity info, but I advise checking it after 3.

    My 1997 tercel uses a tad more than 3 qts. For those of you that dont know what a tad is, its less than a quarter of a quart.

'91-'94 Tercels have the Single overhead cam 3EE Motor.
'95-'99 Tercels have the dual overhead cam 5E-FE Motor. A much improved engine in my humble opinion.
