Having problems with your 2000 Mazda Millenia ?
Have a 2000 mazda millenia S . How much oil does it need?
\015 Do not trust auto zone. they told me it needed a certain amount and after sitting is still not registering on the dip-stick properly\015
Normal with oil filter is 4.3 qts. do not trust the dipstick, it is a very crude measuring device. the best way to find out exactly where on the dipstick to look, is to completely drain your oil, and change the filter. do this when the engine is warm, and let it drain for a while. then, add fresh oil and filter, exactly 4.3 qts, and start it for a minute(to get the oil thru the filter). let it sit for at least 30 minutes to allow all the oil to get back into the sump. THEN see where it is on the dipstick. on both our cars, the dipstick shows almost a qt low, even tho 4.3 qts has been added.
