They actually believe that's 8 inches!

Quarts may be a bit confusing but we males know what a pint is. Most Jeep capacities are measured in pints but that's not what I'm referring to.

|Got 4 Lo||it is more like that it is thinner it is like syrup when it is cold it takes awhile to come out but when you heat it up it comes out like water it is the same thing as oil.|

The best part, Linda...is that it went right over their heads!
|11-15-2010 09:10 AM|
|mavrick300||It definitely had coolant in it. It looked like hot fudge practically! How hard is it to replace a head gasket? And I know I only put 6 quarts in it last time. I always do 5 turn the jeep on check the oil and then if it needs it I add the 6th.|

|OregonTJ||strange for sure......|

Some see the glass half full, this glass was over flowing.
Actually, I can't fathom 1.5 extra quarts of oil (if it is all oil) in the crank case without it being put there. We are missing something, and it isn't oil.

Sorry Just sayin'...........

If you had coolant in your oil, and you are indicating a quart, you would know. The oil would be brown and look like a milk shake.
If you really drained 7 1/2 and don't forget there is more in the filter, someone really F'ed up filling it up.
|11-15-2010 01:36 AM|
|mavrick300||I think it might be leaking from the water pump I'm not sure though.|

|mavrick300||Or a cracked block witch is really bad|
|11-15-2010 12:04 AM|
|mavrick300||Coolant in the oil would mean like a blown head gasket or something?|
|11-14-2010 11:46 PM|
|s3nt3nc3d||The point he's making... if you put 6 quarts in last oil change and got 7 1/2 quarts out of the engine, then either you miscalculated the amount of oil that came out or you've gotten water/coolant in your oil.|
|11-14-2010 11:28 PM|
|mavrick300||Coolant level? My jeep does go through coolant but I'm pretty sure it's the water pump just haven't gotten around to changing it yet.|
|11-14-2010 11:10 PM|
|DevilDogDoc||Check the coolant level.|
|11-14-2010 10:46 PM|
|mavrick300||Lol that's what I said! Made a mess in the garage. oh well!|
|11-14-2010 10:45 PM|
the density change between 80F and 120F is only 2% which makes 6 quarts at 80F become 6.12 quarts at 120F.
|11-14-2010 10:44 PM|
|mavrick300||Yup and only put 6 quarts in and it wasn't over either.|
|11-14-2010 10:42 PM|
who changed the oil last time?
|11-14-2010 10:40 PM|
|mavrick300||The container was completely empty. And it's an 01 6 cyl.|
|11-14-2010 09:48 PM|
it expands but not by that much. I think either it had overfilled or the container was smaller than you think.
the idea of changing oil warm is that it flows faster and if theres dirt and metal in there, its been stirred up floating being drained out.
|11-14-2010 09:47 PM|
|neverfastenough1||The viscosity changes but not the amount. I agree that there was probably something in the container already. You always drain your oil while it is warm.|
|11-14-2010 09:45 PM|
Yes, there's some expansion, but not big enough that you would notice.
I usually start with a hot engine and let it cool down to luke warm when I change my oil. Hot oil can burn.
Some (the arguing types ) will argue that cold oil will drain just fine since it's multigrade and adapts to changing temperatures. My experience is that cold oil doesn't drain as fast or as well as warm oil as it drips forever.
|11-14-2010 09:37 PM|
Yeah, it expands (and thins) to an extent, but even with a warm engine, it wouldn't put out a huge amount more...to be honest, I don't think I usually get the same amount out as what I put in between what's still in the filter when I remove it and the small amount that's burned off since the last oil change.
I agree with the above... you should change it when the engine is warm.
