In Reply to: '94-'98 owners: Anyone using over 5 Qts of oil?, sam96CS [Profile/Gallery] , Wed, 31 Jan 2018 10:29:38
Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

I found answers to the question of whether anyone has put 5.4 quarts of oil in a 2nd generation ('94 - '98) B234 engine and if so then what was the result. It has been done, and nobody has reported a lubrication problem. Some of you will recognize some of the names below as guys who know their way around a 9k.

Sully, who reported 200k miles of 9k oil changes all with 5.4 to 5.5 quarts. He drove a tuned '97 Aero manual.

Dr. J who drove a '97 automatic who always went with 5.4 quarts per his owners manual.

TonyJ who put "over 5 quarts" in '94 and '97 9ks. He didn't report how much over.

Shawn, who was nervous after putting 5.5 quarts in a '95 CSE resulting in a level 1/4" above the X in MAX on the dipstick.

Ari in response to Shawn said that a little above the X is OK.

Ralph who put 5.4 quarts in a '97 then was shocked by how high the level was above the MAX index mark.

Ari who said that adding an extra half quart won't hurt either generation of B234 engine.

For what it is worth I've looked for bad news about actual experiences with running 5.4 quarts in a 2nd generation B234, and I haven't found any. That includes Google searches.
