#1 of 4 4 quarts of oil instead of 4.4?
Oct 03, 2013 (1:06 pm)
What are the negative consequences, if any, of putting 4 quarts exactly of full synthetic oil into my 2010 Toyota Corolla instead of 4.4 quarts (which my owner's manual says is the capacity).
Will it damage my car? I am a bit of a novice in this area, so any information and advice would be appreciated.
FYI: 1.8L engine.

No negatives other than you will be a half a quart less than full. Curious as to why you wouldn't want to top it off? If the motor is made to run optimumly on 4.4 qts. why not fill it with 4.4qts.?

It's because I only bought 4 quarts =(
Does this mean I will have to replace my oil at a sooner time? Could it negatively affect the life of my car?
