    Cool Oil change ?? the manual says 1.8 L Total for service ??

    Oil change ?? the manual says 1.8 L Total for service ??


    I pulled out more than 2.25 L

    Question using the oil dip stick the oil always looked honey colour like new

    But when I took out the used oil looked black as what you would expect
    Don't know why the dip stick was always honey colour ?? even at 50hrs


    What are people doing that have done oil change putting in and taking out ??

    Its non turbo I know that some turbo can have fuel blow through into the oil but not in this case

    I also pulled out 25 percent more oil than they said it took .had the same impression with dip stick but that may be an illusion. Small film of oil on stick looks transparent but larger quantity of oil in bucket looks dark.

    A lot of that black comes from the nitrated parts in the valvetrain.

    Blowby shouldn't be too much of an issue for you NA guys

    Maybe the manual is wrong ??

    with a few more input we may get a true figure

    I don't care what it is just don't want to over fill it

    Fill between markers about 3/4 to full

    If it was not overfilled to begin with just put back the exact amount you took out. Several people told me that it takes more than the manual says. Maybe they are erring on the cautious side so you don't overfill but tap off slowly. ( just looked up the conversion from quarts)I also used 2.3 liter.
