Re: oil change malibu 2005 2.2 engine
The dipsticks aren't always right on either. Maybe 10 years ago, give or take a couple, Corvette capacity was 6.5 quarts and even with 7 quarts in them, the level wasn't at the top of the range. GM actually issued a bulletin stating the capacity was 6.5 quarts and as long as you were withing the crosshatched area to not add more as to do so may induce oil consumption due to an overfilled crankcase. The level at 6.5 quarts was to be considered the full mark. Think that wasn't fun to explain to a 'vette customer? Had to print that one out for quite a few customers to get them to believe us.
