SOURCE: 2007 saturn vue 4 cylinder - change oil

if you've never done this before, i wouldn't experiment...instead, find a friendly mechanic that will do the job and allow you to look on as he completes the work :o)
P.S. ALWAYS take your own WALMART oil filter and use MOBIL ONE, I think your car is 5W20 and takes 4 qts. Then only change the filter every 5k-(when you rotate the tires) and at 15k do a complete drain and filter!
Good Luck

1997 silverado 5.7L I am going to replace the intake gasket because it is leaking. It is buring 1-1/2 quarts of oil or more between oil changes. I suspect a vavle job may be in order but have never done...


Bad valve's will not burn oil, bad valve will cause a cylinder miss fire, due to you will loose cylinder compression, I would replace the valve seal's, Also do a wet and dry compression test, do a dry test, and write down reading's, then add oil in cylinder, and do another compression test, if in any cylinder's compression jumps higher then dry test, that's where your loosing oil, weak piston ring's.

I changed the oil, how many quarts should i put back in. i have a 92 sl1 i believe. 4 door, sohc


With a filter change along with the changing of oil. I would start with four quarts, than start the engine let it run for a second. After that turn it of check the oil, and top off as necessary. Roughly guessing I would say it holds about 4 1/4 quarts. Or could take up to five, its safe to start engine after four quarts. BE SURE to start engine after four quarts for 10-20 seconds, and then turn off to recheck. Too much oil can be catastrophic. (if no oil is showing on the dipstick than it is more than one quart low. The lowest point on dipstick represents one quart low, the middle is half a quart, and full is full) :)

How many quarts or oil do my 2000 dodge interpid take???


Most engines four cylinder and six cylinder are going to have a five quart oil pan. Put in four and a half quarts start the engine for a couple of minutes and shut it back off. Check the dipstick. Nine times out of ten you will need to put in the remaining one half of the fifth quart. Dodge recommends SAE 5W-30 oil in the 3.3-liter engine and SAE 10W-30 oil in the 3.5-liter engine. Selecting the proper oil for your engine will ensure that the components of your engine are protected.

Could you please tell me how much oil dose the engine take Cheers Neil 1997 Kia sportage 2lt petrol


If it is a four cylinder it'll take about 4 to 4 1/2 quarts. Best thing to do is get 5 quarts, add three to it (if empty) and let sit for 10-15 minutes to let oil drain into pan. Check level. If it is not full slowly add about 1/4 of a quart or less (if necessary) and reapeat until full.

Or call or visit a local parts dealer and they can look it up on their computer for you and let you know exactly how much.

Hope this is helpful.

Thank you,

I am loosing oil in my 2006 Rav4 my oil light comes on after 2500 miles of driving my car after an oil change.Toyota is saying you consume 1 quart of oil for every 1000 miles. My Rav holds 4.5 quarts of...


I see you have a four cylinder since it only holds 4.5 quarts.
2006 manual confirms your oil consumption is within allowances. Just check oil every time you buy gas like the manual reccomends. Do not over rev engine or accelerate from stops at max capacity of car as these can increase oil consumption.

Oil capacity


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.

Oil capacity


4 quarts if you want to make sure put 3 1/2 quarts first then check the oil level with the dipstick. If still a little low then add the rest. It's 4 quarts though for a 2.2 l size engine.
