one more dumb question, I usually change my own oil, I got lazy and had my first oil change done at one of those places, I watched all went well untill ---- how much oil do you put in this car, I looked at the owners book it says 8qts no way 8qts ok so here we go we got 7qts in and it was full, the next day I checked it after sitting all night and it's over the top hash mark by 1/4"

what do you think

Curious.... waxing the underside....of your car? Details? Pics?

That is something new to me. My poor car is lucky to get wax on the topside.

I had a similar experience. First change only took a little over 7 qts. Second one was 7.5. No idea why. Changed the filter both times.

6.2 liter takes 8 qts. I had my first change done at the dealer because it was free. Morons sent me out the door 2 qts low!
