  • Oil Pan Volume

    Does anyone know what the liquid volume/capacity of the stock oil sump is? If filled to the gasket? I've no problem - just got curious and mine is in use and not available for a measure.

    I WAS being serious! Not much volume here either.

      Site was rebuilt a couple weeks ago after a major hack. Lotsa people have not logged in since then.

      I unfortunately don't know the answer to your question!

        Curiosity got the best of me....2 gallons come up to within 1/4" of the rim all around...I think another pint would just about overflow it.

            Hum.... Interesting, I didn't think that the dipstick stuck out past the bottom of the block that far. I would have guessed 6 quarts, good thing you checked. But that means that the only way oil "seeps" out of there is under pressure while running if the normal static level is a few inches below the gasket.

              Yeah - I was curious after the near miss from the pressure switch blow-out. Glad the pump pick-up is way down there.

              Hey Ken, if you're really curious and your spare pan is still available, add 3qts then 5-1/2 qts to that pan and measure the level (water I hope) in the sump. That should somewhat correspond to the tip of the dipstick and the high level line. I know I'm curious.

                The pan is 5" deep where the stick goes and the stick extends about 3 and 1/4 inches into the pan.
