Re: Oil change - how many quarts did it take?
I don’t know about FWD. But, when I drove RWD cars it was wise to over fill the sump by 1/2 qt. The logic was; under hard cornering the oil might cling too hard to the side of the sump, moving away from the oil pickup and causing oil starvation.
So I have no problem overfilling by 1/2 qt. (which 6qts fills to on my MS3)
1/2 qt will not harm anything. now if you put 9qts in the crankcase you might fill it up so far that the oil flows over the windage tray and contacts the crack, causing massive drag on the crankshaft.
