Hey guys,

I know the 1.0 3 cyl takes 3.7 qt of oil to refill. Does anybody know how much old oil remains in the engine when it is drained? Or asked differently, how much should come out of the engine when the oil is drained?

Thanks!

Between the filter and what lays up on the head, I'd guess about 1/2 quart. So oil change, fill with 4 qts, fire up to check for leaks, shut down, and drain, I bet 3 1/2 qts +/- comes out.

When I do an oil change, I use 3 quarts. Then, after about 1K miles when it gets lower than the fill mark, I add another. I don't like having partially filled oil cans littering my garage.
