Being these P71's have oil coolers does that increase the oil capacity or is it still the normal 5 quarts with filter?

Well, it makes sense. But it is still kind of hard to believe that the same car without oil cooler would still hold the same amount so how big is the oil cooler/how much does it hold?

actually, i looked up how much they hold before i did my first oil change in my 99 p71. Some site said they held 7 quarts, but I am thinking when you drain the pan out, you aren't draining the cooler, so its prolly still holding a good quart in itself.

A lot of the oil in the cooler lines and cooler will remain. Even if you did drain them out you wouldn't get as much as you'd expect.

Definitely don't dump in 7 quarts!


If you have an oil cooler (p71, Tow) expect to use ~5.25 for -'02 and ~6.25 for '03+
Non oil cooler cars - 5 quarts -02, 6 quarts 03+

I always let my oil stop dripping which usually take 30 minutes unless it is a hot summer day. EVERY P71 I owned took 5.5 to reach the full mark. On the 04 I had, it took 6.5 to hit the full mark. If you just drain and fill quickly and don;t wait for it to stop dripping, then maybe 5 would be fine.

Hold on, can you please clarify this for me.
I might be reading this wrong.

6.25 quarts for 03+ non oil cooler equipped.
5 quarts for 02- oil cooler equipped.
6 quarts for 03+ oil cooler equipped.

My 04 Sport & the 04 LTC both use only 6 qts. Never had experience with oil cooler.

Keep it simple.

Police cars:
98-02 takes 5.5
03-08 takes 6.5

And if I am off by 0.25, no problem. The oil pan has a shield welded into it to prevent the crank from splashing the oil.

This is what it takes to get mine exactly on the full mark. I have owned enough to know it is not a miscalibrated dipstick. However I do let mine drain a long to get as much old out as possible.

I think the best course of action is to buy (2) five-quart jugs of your choice oil. Dump 5 quarts in, start it up, check for leaks, drop the car, and then top off to desired amount. It's always going to be a slightly different amount.

The important part is making sure you get enough oil in the crankcase so it won't run dry then you can always top it off to spec.

I always like filling it up as high on the hashes as it goes. I think the extra capacity helps to absorb heat due to the increased oil volume, I am pretty sure it makes a difference.
