ive read several sources and they all agree that the 5M should take 5.1 liters of oil...

i put 4 liters into my car yesterday, and its reading over full.

am i going insane, or am i just reading the wrong info, or is it possible my dipstick is calibrated wrong?

It shouldnt be over full on 4 liters. mine takes about 5 quarts for a drain and fill w/new filter i realize liters are bigger than quarts but not that much bigger

much appreciated... just glad to hear im not going nuts or reading the transmission capacity or something stupid like that :)

i tossed the fifth liter in and started it...
the knock is still there, but MUCH quieter, and considerably less pronounced :scatter:

Any dents in your oil pan? The on on my 82 has a nice ding in it, and my dipstick always reads a bit over full with the proper 5.1l fill. Could be the wrong dipstick, ive seen that happen too.
