Question about 1996 Chevrolet C/K 3500

1 Answer

Unable to ascertain engine oil capacity from the Owners Manual. There seems to be a difference depending on the VIN?? Reference is made to several different letters but what part of the VIN do they represent? Took a guess at one letter that would indicate 6 1/2 liter capacity but when I added that much oil for the oil change, it's now above the full mark on the dipstick. How much oil does it take to raise the oil from the add mark to the full mark? Thanks, Bill

Did you start the engine yet to see if the filter is full? The filter will hold about a qt.

Different models of cars have capacity that suits the engine, so unless your car model is not known it is difficult to comment.. Also the oil grade depends on the engine type / fuel type. so as for petrol and diesel.
So please check on your manual or reply with the details.

Are all petrol tanks the same size or does it go on the size of ur engine .


Assuming you are asking are all Petrol tanks same size on VW Golfs... if thats the question then the answer is YES..The engine size does not affect the Petrol tank size only consumption (kilometers per litre/ or miles per gallon depending your location...assumed since you called it Petrol you are European) The different YEAR models would have different capacities and or shapes depending on configuration of the vehicle.. but the Golfs didnt go under much design change from 99-2002 so you should be safe if looking for a replacement.

if you have a 1ZZ engine

4.2 quarts, 4.4 quarts with oil filter change

if you have the 2ZZ engine (XRS model) it is

4.4 quarts, 4.6 quarts with oil filter change

NOTE these are updated capacities that reflect changes identified in TSB: TSB-0134-08 issued July 15, 2008.
Your owners manual will reflect a lesser quantity that Toyota has since revised.

How much oil does the transmission takes when services a 1998 2.5


Depends on the transmission. Do you have a owners manual for the vehicle? if so it should tell you how much it holds. You can also call a dealer and give them your vin # which is the number right above your steering wheel near the windshield and they can tell you. You can also use your registration for the vin #.
