Oil Capacity for 2011 2.5L 4cyl
The FREE Toyota Care plan that came with my car paid for the first 5 services including 2 oil changes at 10k and 20k. Since it was free the dealer has serviced my car since new. I was a little unsure about going 10k intervals, but the oil looked just as good after 10k miles as when it was fresh on all oil changes so far.
I just changed the oil for the first time myself at 30k. The canister oil filter is actually pretty mess-free when you use the drain tube that comes with the new filter element. No complaints.
My question is about the capacity. My owners manual states 4.7 quarts with a filter change. After pouring 4.7 quarts in, the level on the dipsick read between the marks. Even after running the engine for a few minutes and pouring the last of the 5th quart in, the level is still not to the full mark. I know that anywhere between the marks is acceptable, but I prefer the level at the top mark.
How much oil are you guys adding at an oil change?
