Recommended Posts

I'm changing the oil for the first time since I bought my 'bu in May. I combed thought the Malibu and Indmar manuals and can't find anything about the amount of oil needed to fill the engine back up after an oil change. Can anyone help me out with this key piece of infomation.

Buy five quarts, but you'll probably only get about 4 1/2 back in the engine.

I use the Mobil M1-302 oil filter and pour in all 5 quarts.

6 quarts, depending on how you get the old oil out, you may be able to get in 5.5

I remember reading somewhere that the Monsoon took 6 qts but I only got 5 out of my old 2000 VLX. When I asked the dealer, they told me it was only 5 qts. I checked the manual on my 05 Lxi Monsoon and it lists the capacity as 5.5 quarts with filter. I assume the oil capacity hasn't changed.

4and 1/2 with new filter every 50 hrs for the last 1100 works every time.

I have never checked how much comes out. I assume almost all of it. 5 quarts fills er up all the way. Don't know how you guys get 6 in.

Extra long filters can hold that extra oil

Mine is an 01, and the manual states 5 qts. Using the filter (Penzoil PZ3 or eqivelant) it holds 5 qts. When I bought the boat from the previous owner it had a longer filter and held about 5.5 qts.

Bingo that's the correct number.
