2000 SL2
Default Oil Capacity for 2000 SL2

Hello,

Can someone please advise me of the oil capacity for the 2000 SL2. I've searched everywhere for engine specs, but all I can find is the usual 1.9L, DOHC stuff. How much oil does the engine hold up the fill level on the dip stick.

Thx

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I always put in the 4 qts the manual recommends. Then end up topping it off with about 1/4 quart. Wolfman is always right.

That's also a good way to do it if one is using a slightly oversized filter... :-)

A little more oil cant hurt u since it has to go thru the whole system and wait until u try a dodge viper oil filter on the saturn (it fits) It uses up almost 1 QUART!!!
