Sorry, I am sure that info was on the other question
I am showing it will hold 3.5L with a new filter, 3.0 without. I do suggest changing the filter each time as it will collect the particles.

Is 5w20 oil the correct oil to use? also should it be normal oil or fully synthetic?

Thanks Stuart

Expert:  Mike V. replied 5 years ago.
5W20 is correct.
You can use either,I would use the organic for flushing and then go to the synthetic if that is what you want to run in the engine normally.
