How many quarts of oil does a car need?

I was talking with my neighbor the other day and mentioned that I’m overdue for an oil change. He enjoys working on cars and offered to do it for me, but I have to buy the oil. How many quarts of oil does a car need?

That’s very kind of your neighbor to offer an oil change and save you a trip to the mechanic!
Having your oil changed regularly is crucial to keep your vehicle running well. Most engines require five to eight quarts of oil depending on size. You can find out how many quarts of oil your car needs in the owner’s manual or on the manufacturer’s website.
Besides regular oil changes, you can prolong the life of your vehicle by following a basic car maintenance schedule and having a mechanic you trust periodically look over your vehicle.
