meh I always end up using 6.5, maybe thats why my car is on fire right now?WopOnTour said:Just a shade over 6 actually , not quite 6.5
(be cafeful not to over fill it)
Most dealers want to charge you for the full 7 though
clownhair said:yep it takes 7 qts to fill it up.
edit--its a Cobalt SS right??
lemme know what your owners manual says. Go get your book now. I dont want to wait.Ronnie Pendergrass said:Are you shure...i ahve read and read the owners manual and i am 99% sure it calls for 5 qts, i only put 5qts in and mine and it is full <------this is after letting it set for a while and i am in a level garage, and when you jack the car up the oil pan tilts back to the plug, so i am sure it all gets out. I will check and see again tomorrow in the book before we go round and round about how many qts it takes.
ok, I will check this thread tommorow then. It might have oil specs for the base cobalts too so make sure it is for the 2.0 engine.Ronnie Pendergrass said:let you know first thing in the morning, the car is down in the garage and i dont feel like walking down there right now.
I believe the 2005 owners manuals were incorect as they don't show different capacities for the L61 and the LSJ. The 2005 FSM (electronic) was updated a while back to correctly show 5qts for the L61 (2.2) and 6 quarts for the LSJ (2.0) due to the extra capacity in the engine oil cooler, (that the L61 doesnt have) Here's the capacities as showning the 2006 Owners manual and FSM.Ronnie Pendergrass said:I am sitting here lokinat mine and i know i am not blind .......I guess there maybe a difference in the redline manual and the ss manual.... wow didnt know this was going to draw so much contoversy! Also it is weird that my LS1 takes 5 or 5.5 qts and it is a v8 and my cobalt is a 4 cyl......it shouldnt need as much ( i guess different engines call for differnet specs, i will post a copy of my owners manual page tomorrow wheni get a digital camera to take a pic. Until then, i will subside into my cave and read and read my owners manual!!!!!!!!!
