    vxr oil capacity

    I just changed my oil and the dealership said it took 4 quarts so I put four in there and it directly at 4. I'm a Lil worried its still to much. I was an oil filter change as well. Just wondering what the actually capacity was?

    I was only able to get 2.8 quarts or so when I changed mine and that was with replacing the filter.

    That's sort of misleading. It should be just quarts listed there.

    It's a Jap engine built to metric spec's........so should just be litres there . You can get 3.6 ltr out with no filter change......tilt trailer all the way down at the front, & jack the L/H side up.

    4 quarts came out of mine... put exactly 4 quarts back in. Oil level is perfectley lined at Full on the dipstick after running it as well. This was with a oil filter change.

    Running Valvoline 10w-30 SAE

    On my first oil change (14hrs) I got about 2.75qts out . Filled it with 3.5qts to be safe. Had to be low right out of the factory.

    On my second oil change (30hrs) I got roughly 3qts. Filled it with 3qts and everything is fine.
