Should be 4 1/2 quarts. If you are changing it yourself add 4 quarts then after a minute or two check it. If it's between the quart low and full line. start the car, then let it sit a few minutes and check it again. If your changing the oil filter the oil will fill up the filter when you start it therefore the level will go down.
Thank you and good luck,
Lee

There are no markings on the dipstick to know where the acceptable level for the oil is on the 1996 Millinea. How do I know if I have enough oil?


Drain the crankcase oil into a clean container in which you are able to measure the amount. Replenish this amount up to the quantity stated in your hand book. Remove dipstick and fill the crancase with just this oil. Dip the oil level and using a scriber or a file, mark the dipstick at the level of the oil.
Notes:
1. The quanity of oil is the engine capaity less the oil filter.
2. You may wish to use clean new oil and fit a new filter. If so, use the fill capacity including the oil filter, or add about another pint.

2010 Vibe Type & Quanity of Eng Oil


The 5-30W gives the oil a better heat range, so when you go to Florida, the engine oil keeps it's viscosity better.
The 5-W20 has a lower heat range and is great in the upper states and canada where the temperature is not as hot as Florida or Texas.
The 0-W20 is even better if your in the colder climate like Alaska so the oil is not that thick, and when you have the start the engine first thing in the morning, the oil can move quicker to the upper part of the engine. 
Best thing is no matter what oil you use, just as long as you follow the recommended oil change duration. Your going to be fine and have a long lasting engine and also make sure you warm up the engine first before running it hard to have the piston and cylinder walls expand the same time. As you run the engine hard when it's cold, the pistons expand quicker then the cylinder walls and after a few years. The pistons and cylinder walls will have to much play and you get piston slaps till the engine warms up. 
Good luck and hope this helps and the 5-W30 is more forgiving if you go over a few miles between oil changes.

How much oil do I add to the ac compressor


It depends if you are replacing the compressor, if so normally runs about 6 ozs. to 8 ozs. depending on size, check the charge sticker to see what the total freon charge amount is and get back to me. Also is it R134A or R12? it makes a difference on what oil you are using so you don't mess up the system. And do you have the system open? Let us know. every car is different in quanity.
