Actually the engine is good at 4.5 quarts but you can put 5 quarts in which it will be a little over full but that should be ok.

Re: How much oil, 5 or 6 quarts?

despite the manual saying 5 quarts, mine always takes 5 litres to get it full, which is more than 5 quarts. I've always had to use more than 5 quarts on my changes.
