    if it is stock all you need is 4 qts of conventional or synthetic... if your in a hotter climate like tx i would run thick oil... cooler thin oil

    Approx 3.7 quarts of oil. Unless you are using (and have been using) synthetic oil,
    its probably best to stick w/ conventional oil at this juncture. Change the oil filter too.
    And the crush washer on the oil drain plug. Do not overtighten the drain plug.
    Depending on the type of oil pan, torque will be either 33ft-lb or (I think) 25ft-lb.

    I use 5W-30 yr-round as it gives better flow @ colder temps. Down to about -20F.
    10W-30 is likely ok if you live in warmer parts of the country (to +10F I think).

    Check your local auto parts store. They run oil change specials every month.
    Usually involve 5quarts oil + a filter anywhere from 14$+. In Feb, I got
    5quarts Mobil Super + filter + 5$ O'Reilly gift card from mail-in rebate for 11$.

    Correction:
    10w-30 displays acceptable cold flow to -10 or -20F. I thought +10F was a bit too high.
