If you have the 2.4 litre engine it takes 5 quarts of oil to refill and if it the 3.6 litre V-6 engine it takes 5.5 quarts to refill.

My husband put in 5 quarts and it was showing as low on the dip stick so he added another 1/2 quart, is that a problem?


Expert:  carguyjosh replied 8 years ago.
1/2 quart of oil extra is not going to be a problem. The specs that GM provides are for middle of the operating range. You should not have any problems, if it was showing low on the stick, I would have also topped it off...
