Thumbs up 3 is perfect....

gives you a little to burn without being low until next change, i always put exactly 3 in mine and the dipstick reads perfect every time. Be careful though, some oil change shops don't have accurate databases on what cars get what amount, stand over them like an effing hawk.

2000 GXE 5spd Hks custom cat-back, k&n drop in, SE-R fascia, billet grille, Alpine CDA-7893, Alpine type-r coax in back, Alpine type-r comp in front, MRV-F340 4 chan, JL 12W6V2, JL 500/1

3.7 Quarts

It takes 3.7 Quarts. Check your dipstick to see if you have enough, or if it is overfilled.

We are Louisiana's largest Nissan dealer in Nissan cars, trucks, and SUV's.
We service around 250 cars a week.

Best of Luck,

Read your dipstick carefully.

The most important thing to do is to know your own car by monitoring the dipstick carefully.

We put 3.7 quarts in when we get this type of engine into our shop for oil changes.

Great to see you on this board.

Question BestNissanParts : Nissan has gone to a tiny oil filter as of about 2000. I have chosen to ignore the tiny filter for my 2001 SE. I use the equivalent filter for the 1999 Max. This is the Pure ONE L14620, Mobil 1 M 110, and K&N 1010.. I realize you may not want to comment here, but have others used the Max filter for the SR20DE engine? Again I appreciate you being here.

Also for the record, I have the 2001 SE and looking very closely at the car, there are few cars, if any that are built better IMHO. The care they took in designing the little electrical stand-offs and mechanical hangers in the engine compartment are awsome. I also think the build quality is extremely good. I've been around the block (56 yrs old-Mechanical Engineer). My compliments to Nissan.

Later- I have lots more questions for you. Especially with my OBD II Scanner.

I need to figure out a new signature.
