All-

How much oil does a 93 DTS with the 4.9 ltr. V-8 take to be completely full? IE-When changing the oil and filter, how much do you put in the engine? Thanks.

Generally thought to be a no-brainer idea, this procedure has led many a mechanic and owner alike to improperly fill their engine oil. Over the years, there have been several cars that for some reason or another, have been equiped with an improperly calibrated dipstick which would lead to over or under-filling the sump.
BOTTOM-LINE: Always go with the proper specified amount regardless of what the dipstick says.

That's nuts, all we have and can go by is what the stupid dipstick says. How can one ever know if they are improperly calibrated!? I can imagine GM using an Impala dip for a Caddy to save money.:D
