: Service and Owner Manual Discrepancies...

04-03-09, 03:37 PM
I just purchased the GM Service Manual for my 2004 SRX (V6 AWD). I have a couple planned repairs and maintenance items as the vehicle is new to us. To my dismay, I have found the following discrepancies between (and within) the GM Service Manual (SM) and the Owner's Manual (OM):

Engine Oil w. filter change: SM - 5 quarts (only listing), OM - 5.6 quarts V6 and 7.5-8.0 quarts V8
Front Differential: SM 0.7L or 1.37 quarts (this does not convert properly)
Rear Differential: SM 1.3L or 1.37 quarts (proper conversion)

Comments welcome...

Bloody metric eh?

My V6 holds 6+ quarts with a filter change. From what I understand, the Cadillac AWD (as well as V6 variants in other GM divisions) have a different sump and may hold a different amount of oil.

Just changed mine. My 05 V6 holds 5 and 1/2 Qts (I think the owners manual calls for 6 though)

5.6 gets my V6 to full reading
