I have actually a 2013 Honda accord exl v6. I just did an oil readjust on it with Mobil one 0w20. Eexceptionally "book" says capacity is 4.5qt however I was able to put 5.5qt before it hit the height line on the dpi stick am I ok or is that to a lot cuz it is perfect on the dipstick and also I feel prefer if I took a qt. out it would be to low.

Welcome to Drive Accord!Your oil filter holds oil also. Also, are you on level ground?I freshly changed my oil too and had actually just the front jacked up. Drained 5 quarts....freaked me out.Follow the dipstick! Let the engine warmth up, then let it cool and let the oil clear up dvery own. Then meacertain the dipstick.Breathe!

Interesting however how did you meacertain the oil. Did you heat up the engine and let it clear up and also examine or did you meacertain it cold after you poured in oil....

I began the car let it heat up shut it down and also checked it. Iv been a mechanic for 5 years and also I was concerned due to the fact that it took extra oil. I know the hand-operated claims 4.5 so why did it take 5.5 before it hit the line on the dipstick? Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App

Dealer did our initially oil change and also quoted us for 4.2 quarts. In anticipation for our road trip 350 miles each way through 15% on the MM. Went ahead and percreated second oil readjust this morning. Rotated wheels (cleaned out all that brake dust looks clean). 4.5 quarts about measured. w/ brand-new filter. Checked after warmth up and it was at the optimal line. Seems spot on. Will keep 0.5 quarts handy in instance the oil filter decides to have its oil late. I"m as baffled as you are as to why it is taking 5.5 quarts. Though some members report draining more than 5 quarts of oil out of theirs maybe as a result of incline?

if you examine the oil just after shutting the car off it will be inspecific considering that the majority of oil is hanging out in the valvetrain draining to the crankinstance. either you measured wrong or probably you drained it for 10 days, or perhaps your engine is burning oil/leaking oil and you are simply added what was burnt/shed. the engine holds more than what is drained in the time of an oil and filter adjust.
I likewise have actually a V6. When I did an oil and also filter change, I bought a 5 gallon jug of oil, emptied 16 ounces of it right into an empty quart bottle and then poured the remaining 4.5 quarts into the engine. After beginning the engine and also letting it run for a pair of minutes, I checked the oil and also it was exactly wbelow it should have actually been, at the peak level mark.This approach has actually functioned perfectly for me all 3 times I"ve done oil changes on the vehicle.
