From 1981 onward, engine oil capacity is 4.2 quarts including the filter. It's cheap insurance to change the oil filter anytime you change the engine oil. The V-dub engine works a bit harder - at higher revolutions - than does an American V-8 so it's also a good idea to change oil with the seasons. Yep, the price for a quart of motor oil has gone up a bit but not near as expensive as an engine rebuild. If you're a DIYer, dispose of your used oil in an environmentally friendly way.
