2016 Mazda CX-5 GT AWD w/Tech Pkg
- Plano, Texas, USA
Really? See post #20、#24 and #25 above by Mazdiod2、cz5gt and Conrad 16.5 and all of them have 2.5L instead of 2.5T and use 5 quarts (5 liters / 5.28 quarts for cz5gt) of oil for oil change.What is there to be confused about? Is 5.1 quarts not "about 5 quarts" as I stated, and as you highlighted in bold? The only confusion I'm aware of is your mention of the 2.5 NA, since both the OP and Ladd have 2.5T-equipped CX-5s, and the discussion has been regarding only that engine (until you brought up the 2.5 NA in this post).
We can use whatever the quantity you feel comfortable for the oil change, but we should be consistent on the subject. Double standards are not my believe of telling people who need such information. And I especially dislike the Mazda way trying too hard to be different from everybody else. How many times we’ve seen people asking questions on oil level when they use the specified oil quantity and found the oil level is way lower than the Full / Max mark?As I have mentioned in my responses to you in particular, about filling the oil - it's personal preference, and the exact amount required depends on a lot of other factors (drain time, prefilling the oil filter, oil level preference, etc.). To account for all of those variances, an approximation of about 5 quarts is logical, with a suggestion to keep an extra quart of oil on hand to account for oil level preference.
0.37 quart specified on rear differential, but 0.75 quart in reality? OTOH 0.45 quart is the correct quantity specified for front transfer case?
Don’t even bring up the range of torque value given only by Mazda in every manual ⋯
