- Not Seattle, but close.
I have bitched repeatedly at the guys at the garage I use for overfilling my Jeep. This weekend I decided to do it myself at last. I let the old stuff drain for at least 45 minutes(it was hot), and nothing was coming out, not a drip. So I put on the new filter, and poured in 6 quarts of Chevron 10W30. The 4.0 holds 6 quarts, according to my owner's manual. So 6 went in. The oil level was right to the FULL line on the dipstick. Now the dipstick says it's about a half quart too full. So....do I drain it back to the FULL mark, or just consider the new level to be the 'real' FULL mark? [ October 22, 2003, 01:35 PM: Message edited by: MarkC ]
