Maybe, maybe not. Relies on all at once capacity. If the crankshaft is whipping the yes. Yet I"m not reasoning an extra quart would carry out that v a 5-6 quart capacity.

Thanks because that the quick reply. I tend to gain overly anal and also concerned around things. Specifically now that i"ve chose to simply keep truckin" v this and also avoid a vehicle payment. I"ll just keep act 5 1/2 quarts like normal.Thumbs up!-Markus
I"d still examine the stick. If Jiffy Lube slaps a brand-new filter on if it"s tho draining because they are in a hurry there"s your 1/2 quart anyways. Ns pull the drain plug and also filter, go execute something else because that a while, then finish. Ns fill the brand-new filter prior to spinning that on too. I usually put approximately 5 quarts in, fire that up, turn it off and also let the sit, climate check and top off. I understand that sounds like 8 extra steps however whatever it help me sleep in ~ night lol.

Big snapshot I wouldn"t sweat it. A lot of of males hit the paid off milestone and also decide they must fix every squeak and also rattle, rebuild the van from the ground up...I doubt you would be whereby you room with it if you didn"t currently take an excellent care of it. My attitude has to be something like run it/ride it/race it/fix it once you break it with whatever I"ve owned from mowers to motorcycles.

5-1/2 quarts isn"t going come cause any type of issues v that 5.7 - You finish up around 5-1/2 quarts anyway if you prefill the oil filter at the moment of oil change. No worries!
The manual on mine said 5 qts. I"d fill the filter and also then intake the remainder in v the oil fill on top of the valve cover. Never had any type of issues in 150k miles. A tiny extra won"t pains anything. Go too much and also you"ll probably fill increase the PCV and have to clean the out. However 0.5 qt more than likely doesn"t matter.
