Oil capacity


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

Treated the car to a new filter and oil (5ltr) does anyone know the oil capacity with a filter change? I keep finding various amounts online. 2003 JDM

 

Thanks .... :)

It is if it's been burning it or leaking, did you happen to check the level on the dipstick before you dropped it out? Not had any lights come on the dash before?

The car doesn't loose oil or smoke and I've never had a dash oil light on.. I actually didn't check the oil prior to doing the change. But car was at operating temp before I drained it but only 1 3/4 litres came out! Have put just under 5 litres in and will check level later once cooled but what I have noticed is the oil pressure gauge doesn't read like it did. Before it you to sit just around 4 and then go up when I put my foot down but now its between 0 And 4 at idle and creeps above 4 when I accelerate.

I appreciate all your replies :) hands covered in much atm so hard to reply straight away :)

Sounds like you might have an issue there mate, I've done a bit of reading on here about a common fault with a gasket on the timing chain cover, might be worth you having a read 👊
