Default Might be a dumb question.

I checked the FAQ threads, but how much oil should an 05' WRX have? And when I fill the oil filter, should I count that oil as part of theamount of oil to put in?

Usually there is a slightly different amount quoted with or without a filter change. However, IMHO these are guidelines and the dipstick is the real decision maker. My strategy is to put 4 qts in while car's on ramps (I use them to make the oil change easier). Then I back it down and run the engine for a minute, then shut it off and go do something else. A while later I'll check the oil and top it up based on dispstick readings.

EDITED for clarity: you should buy 5 qts for an oil change, but you won't need to use all of the 5th qt.

Edit

Technically:
4.8 qts including the filter to be on the upper level.
3.7 qts including the filter to be on the lower level.

I think 4.2 qts excluding the filter. But who isn't gonna change their filter?

So yes, 4 qts is a good starting point. Add more if necessary.

thanks for clearing that one up. I went to the store and didn't know how much I should get. So I just got a six pack to be on the safe side.
