2005 Chevrolet Equinox

Subject:Information on 3.4L V-6 Engine Oil Capacity #05-06-01-024 - (08/10/2005)


Models:2005 Chevrolet Equinox
with 3.4L V-6 Engine (VIN F -- RPO LNJ)


This bulletin is being published to advise technicians of a change to the engine oil capacity. The engine oil capacity with filter is listed in the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox Owners Manual as 4.5 quarts (U.S) or 4.3 Liters (Canada). This is being revised to an initial fill of 4.0 quarts (U.S) or 3.8 Liters (Canada), (approximate) with filter and top-off as necessary. The 4.5 quarts (U.S) or 4.3 Liters (Canada) recommendation was an initial volume fill for a completely dry engine at the assembly plant. The change in oil quantity will not be realized in the field by the customer during an engine oil change.


GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
