I have a '77 cj5.

What's the engine oil capacity?

The oil dipstick is awefully short compared to those I had in other 258s, but so is the tube. I would like to verify the reading on the distick by changing the oil but need to know the required amount.

thanks

Endless debate on JeepForum. I have always maintained 6 quarts and mine was a 1985 (little over 6 with the big Mobil1 filter). I believe many manuals say 6 quarts, as well. Many concur, but a bunch of people also post that theirs seem to take 5 quarts. I have a set of 1978 FSMs and can see what they say.
