HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

I’m using a TPC oil pan. How many quarts of oil should I be using?

If you are using the oil filter on the engine, then it's 6 quarts. If you are using a remote oil filter, then it could be as much as 7 quarts depending on how long the oils lines are. If you have an oil cooler as well, then that adds more.
Simplest way to check, is fill with 6 quarts. Start the engine for a minute to get the oil circulated through everything. Shut the engine off and then check the dipstick. Fill as needed to get to the full mark.

I do have the filter on the engine/pan.
No oil cooler. But when I do add 6 quarts the dipstick still says to add more

Do you have the GM dipstick, or is it an aftermarket?

I need to ask Kent at TPC to be sure. I was thinking 6 quarts, but maybe it is 7.

I talked to Kent and he verified 6 quarts. So I would suggest getting an F body dipstick and tube. The vette may be different due to the pan they use. I wouldn't think so, but not sure.

6 litres into the pan (about 6 quarts) with a TPC pan and F-Body tube and dipstick gets me to the top mark. There’s more oil in the system since I have a remote filter and cooler, but if I empty the pan and fill it 6 litres is the amount to hit the top mark on the dipstick.
