Yes 6 qts, and I have always run synthetic in mine, Mobil 1, and as far as the fuse, I will have to check on that after work, I disconnected my door light plungers but I will check on what fuse

doesnt matter what brand of oil you use in my opinion... Most guys on here will tell you use whatever is cheap.. The 4 liter just needs good ole lubricant and it doesnt care what...

Im not sure how much oil, I would put in 4, check your dipstick and add as needed untill you hit the F mark.

It is the number 4 fuse behind the glove box, small hands or needlenose pliers will do it. Just be carful with your lghts, the dummy alarm wont go off if you leave your lights on so be weary...

The fuse is behind the glove box and it should be labeled courtesy light or interior light
