Mine always take 7qt. which leave me a little over the halfway mark when the engine is fully warm. I would just keep an eye on the gauge and recheck the dip stick here and there.
I'm putting in 6 7/8 quarts, and that puts me 1/8" below the max dot, 8 quarts for an 06 is way way too much oil. I see you're in the Chicago area, I'm doing timing advances/idle air volume learn for $25 if you ever get interested in wanting that mod.Bartek101 said:I have changed my oil yesterday, and until yesterday, i was under impression that the Titan takes between 6.5 and 7 qts of oil. Yesterday I have changed my oil for the 1st time since I bought it and it took full 8qts... is that normal? When I checked level @ cold engine the dipstick was showing in the middle of 2 holes, once engine wormed up it shows towards full. My question is: isn't 8 qts too much, I don’t want to overfill and blow gaskets,,,
Sounds a bit shy to me...I let mine sit and drain until it stops dripping also...This is on level ground...gabbro808 said:I put 6 qts in mine and it is right in the middle when cold. I change my own oil and I let it fully drain before I put in the new stuff. Is this normal.
Is that the Mobil 1 filter ???Brundy said:Mine takes 8 with the remote filter I installed.
i saw someone changing the oil on a ford truck (dunno what f seriesl exacaly) but it took 18 quarts of oil, it was a turbo diesel that came into my toyota dealer:eek2:Helinut1970 said:I had always put 7 and a 1/4 in mine. You should be pretty far over full with 8 in. My diesel takes 10 1/2. That hits the pocket book every oil change.
To answer your question, YES 8 qts is too much. The owners manual says 6 1/2 qts. A lot of people put in the extra 1/2 qt to put it to the full mark, I don't think that an extra 1/2 qt will do any harm. But an extra 1 1/2 quarts could.Bartek101 said:My question is: isn't 8 qts too much,
lmao, headlight fluid, did you add that in there, looks like different font and there is a extra line dividing the headlight fluid section from the other. and finally the capacity matches the windshield washer tank capacity.baseballfanz said:Here's a chart for all fluid capacity level.:cheers:
8qt mean you were bone dry from an engine overhaul.
