And they need to correct their capacity list. Says my car has a 1.06 gallon capacity. But in reality it takes just shy of 5 quarts when changing the oil and filter, and a bit less if just changing the oil.
Now if they're using imperial gallons, that's close but becomes slightly more than what is needed.
Worked fine for my two cars. I'm surprised it recommended synthetic in my Acura, when the manual never said that. It doesn't have my girlfriend's 2001 Civic on the site. They completely skipped that year of Honda.
It found my truck just fine. And, I wanted to have some fun, I wanted to see if they would specify the same oils for my generation of F-150, or if they'd go by the back-spec - and if so, when it changed.
So, my truck is a 2001 F-150 (5.4L V8). Its generation was 97-03.
Pennzoil recommendation/specification for these years:
1997 = 5w-30
1998 = 5w-30
1999 = 5w-30
2000 = 5w-20
2001 = 5w-20
2002 = 5w-20
2003 = 5w-20
Eeyup! Just what I figured.
I'm not at all part of the "thicker is better" crowd - but nor am I part of the "thinner is better" crowd... I just use what was originally specified rather than following the back spec.
