    Total is 12 when system is dry.

    It usually takes 10 +/- at oil change.

    5W40 Redline

    Make sure you have an oil filter wrench to torque the filter around 18.5-18.6 ft-lbs.

    You will also need 12 mm and 14 mm hex wrenches and 22 mm oil rings

    engine at normal operating temp- leave car idling- check with cap resting on top of reservoir (not in screwed down position)

    Use a rag to hold dipstick cap she will be hot.

    5W40 is the perfect match, but 10W40 is ok too.

    This is your mother speaking: did you properly torque that filter?

    Would it be recommended to use Redline 5w-50 oil instead of the recommended 5w-40?
    I live in Florida and it gets pretty hot during the summer months so i would think that the 5w-50 would provide better great protection.
