1997 Chevy Cavalier Oil Quantity Will Depend On The Oil Filter, If The Car Uses a Metal Oil Filter Located Under The Car, It Will Only Take 4.5 Quarts To fill it, But If It Uses a Paper Filter it will take 5 quarts.


Alway Check The Oil Dipstick After Filling To Assure You Have Put Appropret Amount in, and Always Start Engine After Filling Oil To Allow The Oil Filter To fill With Oil, Nomaly 10 seconds is best.

put 5 qts in. it wont hurt a thing!! (unless it is too much and gets forced out seals causing leaks Add 3 1/2 quarts, start it, shut it off, wait a few munites and check it, adjust as needed.)
