5.2L 318 Oil capacity?
I have a 2001 Ram with the 5.2L 318 engine. The hand-operated states that the oil volume for the engine is 5 quarts. Every time I do an oil change, I use 5 quarts and also a little extra to to fill up the oil filter before installing, yet when all is said and done, the oil level always reads fifty percent way in between "full" and "low" ~ above the dipstick, or ideal in the center of the safe zone. The would show up that the engine would require at least 5 1/2 or maybe even 6 quarts to reach the complete mark. Walk anyone else an alert this together well? Thanks.

My 3.9L in my 88 always takes 5 quarts when it is filled. The publication was wrong. Think it stated 4 or 4.5? I have only changed the oil on mine 99 once or double as I perform not have actually the time anymore. I think it to be a little much more than the publication for that as well.
use the 5 qts, i typically see inconsistancy in the oil to fill levels, the dip stick or the tube is whats resulting in the level come be slightly off, dont review too much into it, simply use the 5qts
My "94 evade will shed a 1/2 quart if you to fill it to the full mark. The Chevy 327 did the very same thing in the "60"s. This may be a common thing.......................
