How many quarts of oil...

Will I need to change my own oil? I already have jack stands and will be picking up an oil flter as well as a drain pan.


Oh yeah and whats the easiest way to dispose of the used oil?

look in your manual but don't put it all in at once.... the hemi says 7, but that's bone dry at assembly, you never get it all out in an oil change, start with 6 or 6.5, check it then run it for a few seconds and turn it off, let it settle a minute then check it again, then add to get it to the top line.

Not sure what is spec'd for V6 so check manual to get you close.

And, be sure to have a drain pan big enough to hold 6.5 qts. (Ask ElCobra about this one!)

6qts is needed for the 3.5l engine in your SXT, and your local trash place should have some large containers for used oil and antifreeze.

Also remember you need to remove the belly pan/skid plate plastic thingy.. 4 bolts and can't recall their size...

don't over tighten your filter and make sure the gasket of the old one is off.

Easiest place I find to drop off oil and the used oil filter is either at a Canadian Tire (don't know if you have one or not, but something along the lines of that) or if you look up in the telephone book for a waste recycling service they usually take them too.

Hopefully that helps

The 4 bolts on the skid plate are 10 mm. It takes 6 quarts of any 10w-30 oil. Personally I would reccomend Mobil 1 fully synthetic oil with a Mobil EP filter. The filter number is M1-204.

Oh yea, and you can dispose of the oil at any place that does oil changes.

Yeah thats exactly what I got. I had an oild place change it out to that 6,000 miles ago, and they charger me like $80. It cost me $60 for 6 quarts, mobile one filter and a 15 quart oil catch pan thingy. I am going to attempt to do it tonight, as yes, as much as I love cars, I have never changed my own oil. Its sad.
