how many quarts of oil for 1999 Z24 2.4L
Monday, October 27, 2008 7:23 PM
I just changed my oil today and added 4 quarts but the dipstick is registering almost a quart low. I havent had this car long but I noticed when I first bought it a few months ago it was showing a quart low then after the dealer had the oil changed. Is this alright to leave like this or should I add another quart or so until it registers full. Or am I supposed to add 5 quarts? I checked the owners manual and it says 4 quarts.

Usually they take about 4.5 Fill it up until it reads full on the dipstick.

It takes almost 5. Watch your oil level with the 2.4, it has a tendency of spinning a crankshaft bearing if you run it low.

well my 2200 takes exactly a 4.4L jug. and a qaurt is less than a litre. so if the engines are the same for oil im saying maybe 4.5-4.6 quarts

yeah definately add some until it hits the full mark, but add a little at a time so you dont overfill it. when i had a 2.4 5 quarts was about right for mine.



Did I mention I drive a 2000 Lumina now?-----wigm-tuners.org member
