Re: Oil change question: 5.5 quarts in the 3.6L V6
Actually, if you're above the "ADD" point, being "low" isn't a problem, and may be beneficial - since you will reduce windage and drag inside the oil pan, helping the power and economy of the motor (a very, VERY minor bit, but still ... )
But if it bothers you that much, do your own oil and filter change, and save money / use better oil and filter / both!
335K miles on original motor and tranny (only motor work 2 x LIM replacement), Monroe SensaTrac struts front and back (new at approx. 300K miles), and Alero discs in back. LS fogs added with custom wiring. HID high beams, HIR low and halogen fogs. Raybestos Pro Grade front rotors and Bendix D747 ceramic pads on front.
Addendum: Rest in peace. Surge tank blew, motor overheated, I think she's lived a long and useful life.
