Anyone know what the oil capacity is for a d16 motor???
3.5 quarts if you use the regular size filter like the OEM one. 3.75 quarts if you use the oversize Purolator filter.

I know your a guy, but they give you a manual with the car when u buy it for a reason, open it up it can be very useful sometimes!

Try checking your owner's manual, there's a wealth of information in there that no ever reads, it tells you how to do almost all basic maintanence (at least fluids wise) and gives you all the capacities for oil, radiator fluid, etc. as well as bulb sizes and filters. Not trying to be a dick, I understand that sometimes when you buy a car used it won't come with one but it's all right there, I still can't figure out why people don't bother to look.

If the oil is between the two dots it is ok. You don't want it to be above the top dot because that means it's too full. If it is below the bottom dot then you better add some oil before you decide to drive it. Basically full is just to the top dot. Hope that helps.

Sounds exactly right Mr. Lubeman :D . We have to be nice to the newbies though. I remember when I was still learning all this shit. Although reading is the best way to learn. So when you gettin that Lancer!!;)

Hmmmmmmmm . . . might be a while. I do remember now that you had to pay it straight up although you can finance it. Those cars are the shit!! Would whip a Honda's ass anyday!
