How many quarts of oil?

Post by jetech » Wed Sep 05, 2018 11:13 am

One common question is how many quarts of oil should be used.

In a stock oil pan, it's recommended by users to run 7 quarts.

It's been overly documented the issues with oil starvation in these vehicles. Other common fixes for oil starvation are running a C6 pan in RWD models or installing a PCMofNC modified oil pickup tube for AWD models.

Even though I have the relocated oil pickup tube in my AWD, I still run 7.5 quarts.

Running 7-7.5 qts is safe and won't cause negative effects. Even guys that install the PCM tube, still run that much.

What's the highest you can go before risking too much, by the way?

7-7.5 qts should be plenty. No need to go over that unless you have a modified pan.
