Question about Honda Civic Coupe

1 Answer

In the owners manual it give a capacity figure for the car's engine (4.6 US qts). Does adding this amount of oil bring the oil level (assuming all the oil having been previously drained) to the top or the bottom of the XXXs marked on the dip stick.

That capacity will bring the oil level above the XXX.
3.5 qts will bring it to the top.

    sorry didn't mention the model and year: 2009 Civic SI w/owner's manual cap of 4.6 US qts (w/filter).

  • JJOrgis Nov 09, 2010

    Si will take the 4.6 if you use the factory filter or another brand "long" filter.

I have a 1997 4-wheel drive toyota tacoma. It has a 2.7 ltr. 4 cylinder A34OF auto transmission. I had the transmission fluid changed and we are unsure as to the correct amount to put back. The...

you put ion the amount to bring back to the correct level on the dip stick
unless you have completely drained the transmission AND the torque converter then the amount required is around 1/2 the capacity stated in the book
so start with the 2.1 quarts monitoring the dip stick until you get it on the mark then follow the instructions in the user manual as to starting /running in gear at idle and topping it off as required

I bought a 1998 Chrysler Sebring LXi recently and it didn't come with an owners manual... How many quarts of oil does the engine need?

Buy 5 qts of oil. Drain the oil and replace the filter. Add 4 qts and start the engine. let it idle for a few minutes. Shut it off and recheck the level on the dipstick, use the last qt to finish adding to full if necessary.

How much engine Oil?

The engine oil capacity of a Daihatsu Sirion, 1000 cc Auto, 1999 is roughly 2.5L assuming the sump was drained and new oil filter installed.
This amount will bring the oil level on the dipstick to the upper line.
As a caution, put in 2L initially, then run the engine for a few moments then switch off. After a few minutes recheck cleaned dipstick level and top up as necessary.

What is the oil capacity for 2003 93 conv.? A

If your car uses 6.4 of oil to fill it, are you now swimming in oil when you drive it? that is a lot of oil for a car, I can see cars using up to 5 qts, but that is for very large cars, your car is not that big, i would say it is somewhere in your owners manual the ammount of oil required, but if not then call up autozone, pepboys, etc. and they can look it up for you to give you the exact ammount. 6.4 seems like way to much for a car that size. I could see maybe 4.6 qts but should be around 4 qts.
