HOW MUCH OIL DOES MY CAR NEED?

Whether you have a sedan or a truck, your car has a set oil intake. If you plan to do your own oil change, you first need to determine your car’s engine oil capacity. You don’t want to overfill it because the oil may find its way into parts of the engine where you don’t want it to go. You also don’t want to under fill it either, since you may find the engine under lubricated and subject to overheating.

How much oil a car requires is determined by the make and model of your vehicle. Most engines require anywhere between 5 to 8 quarts of oil, depending on your car’s engine size. The smaller the engine, the less oil required to fill the volume of the engine.

How to Find Out How Much Oil Your Engine Takes

Your Owner’s Manual Most owner’s manuals list the engine oil capacity under "Lubrication System" in the "Vehicle Specifications" section.
The Manufacturer’s Website Once on the website, look for a section of the site specifically for vehicle owners, usually found at the bottom of the page.
Other Online Resources If you’re still having trouble locating the information, do quick search online. There are several websites that list the oil and fluid capacities of a number of different makes and models of cars and trucks.
