All went well with oil change today at dealer. Price was reasonable for synthetic. Dealer mentioned a recall for rear taillights which will be done next week. Overall good experience with this dealer.

Good for you. Stick with the 30. No benefits to running the 20
Isn’t the actual drain and fill 6-7/8 quarts with filter?It’s 7 qts 0w-20 synthetic only and the zero is equally as important especially on startup. If someone is going to buy oil it’s right there with the rest of it. In 2020 the manual shows no alternate weights like previous years.
In most vehicles, the crankshaft that drives the engine’s pistons sits just above the oil reservoir located at the bottom of the oil pan. In order to move lubricant throughout the motor, a pump pressurizes it and draws it up from the pan (or sump), so it can be sprayed in key areas. Overfilling engine oil can raise the level of oil in the pan to the point where the crankshaft starts to make significant contact with the reservoir. Since it moves so fast, it can turn the oil from a liquid into a froth that the pump is no longer able to siphon and distribute. At that point, the engine can starve from lubricant to the degree that serious damage is often the end result.
Thank all of you for the feedback. I was just stating what the manufacturers owners manual stated. Now I know the owners manual is only a recommendation I will toss it and just get all my info from forums.I’ve been puttin’ in somewhere around 7qts since my first 04’ Titan..
Even though I got a “B” in math I would still struggle tryin’ to measure out 7/8th a quart…
Seven will be fine along with 6.5qts
