SOURCE: How many quarts of oil will the 2008 Hyundai Elantra hold?

Does the book say 6 quarts? I would put in 5, then run it, then let it settle for a couple minutes, then check it again. The book should be right. That would probably include changing the filter also.

SOURCE: how many quarts of oil does the engine hold

I believe that in 1990 the 2.0L was replaced by the 2.3L. The 2.3L was offered in two versions. Standard and turbo. However since there may well have been 2.0L available in 1990 I included both capacities.

  • 2.0L: 4.0 litres.
  • 2.3L: 4.7 litres
  • Grades:Grade: Saab Turbo Engine Oil or an oil which meets the requirements of API SG and CCMC G4 or G5.
  • Viscosity: 10W/30, 10W/40, 5W/30 or 5W/40
If your Saab is the Turbo model please remember to take the extra steps necessary to protect the turbo unit.

#1
Before you add any new oil, fill the new filter up first.
#2
After you have secured the oil filter and refilled the rest of the oil remove the coil wire to prevent the engine from starting.

After that turn the engine over for a count of 10 to 15 seconds. Now reconnect the coil wire and start the car.

This extra step is Critical and Necessary to prime the oil system. If the engine is started with an unprimed oil system and an empty oil filter the turbo will not receive oil for 10 to 15 seconds after start up. Some scientist have speculated that this was in fact an unlikely cause of the last great extinction event that occurred somewhere else. ":->

Hope this helps and good luck.

That is strange. Do not rule out the possibility that you have a leak somewhere in the vehical. I would check this out immediately, or it is going to cost more in the long run. Check the oil pan and the ground where you park your vehical.

My oil stick is at the add line. How much oil should I put in? And what kind of oil? Dont know the oil compacity on the engine.


You do not list the engine size. This truck comes with 3 engines. 5.4 V8, 7.3 Diesel, and a V10. Your owner's manual will list the capacity. The add mark normally means add 1 quart on a V8. Add 1/2 quart wait 5 minutes and check the level again. The 5.4 L V8 capacity is 6 quarts of 5w20 with filter change. If it is a diesel then it requires a special oil for diesels which is 15w40 weight and it holds 14.5 quarts.

2003 F150 4.6 w/ 90K miles using a quart of oil every 3 weeks. what's most likely cause?


A V8 engine will start to consume more oil as they get more and more
miles on them. The valve stem seals and piston rings wear, and let
more and more oil burn off in the exhaust. How many miles are you
travelling in said 3 weeks?
