Oil capacity

4,5l - oil capacity at change without filter
4,8l - capacity at change with filter
5,3l - capacity of oil at full change

what is oil capacity between max/min level? Does anybody know? i haven't found this info anywhere.

5.1 QT for a full oil and filter change. But if you let it drips all the way out like me then it'll be around 5.5 QT. It also depends on your filter size too. If you have an after market filter that is larger then more oil. Just check the dip stick.

Prelude of the Month

Buy a gallon and an extra quart. That's what i've always done- that way you have a little leeway.

actually from what i see, it's cheaper to stay away from the quarts and stick w/ the gallon jugs. more bag for your buck. idk what prices are like for you guys but for us in wa, buying 5 1 quarts like like 2-3 more dollars than just getting the big jug.

From the experience of people I've come to know. From the "add" hole to the "full" hole, it is supposed to be 1 quart, if that's what you were asking.

That's exactly what I do! I try and tell people I know that, but they don't listen, and always just buy 5-6 of the single quarts....Morons.

buy 6 quarts. add 4.5 then start the car. Check the oil level and then add whatever it takes to make it full and use the rest for topping off and random points in time before the next change.

Ditto.

It's such a good deal, I don't know why people don't just buy two 5-quarts.

Ohh, right, I forgot most peoples cars don't burn oil by the gallon like your H22's do.

I bought 4 gallons of oil the other day, it was on special.
It's always good to have a reserve for that oil burning!

I don't know why, but all of the parts stores only sell gallon oil jugs. Maybe they only have gallon ones because most engines are 4qt or less? I do know that Walmart sells 5qt jugs. instead of gallon ones.

This winter my buddy helped change my crankshaft seal, oil cooler seal and oil pan. We let it sit for a week between disassemble / reassemble. I kid you not it took 6 quarts of oil to refill. Maybe 6.5. I was so freaked out I checked it everyday for two weeks. Ya know I'm not burning a damn bit of oil anymore? Nothing like everyone else says (1 quart per 1,000 miles). VTEC is a regular everyday - all the way. So what is the major cause of leakage for everyone? Ponder that!

Here's a point of interest to anyone changing their own oil especially if you're trying to get oil from a galon container to pour into the filler hole in the cam cover.

If you cut the bottom out of a litre plastic vodka bottle you can thread the small end right into the filler hole. The threads match up... Instant fool proof funnel.
