Re: Torx bit size
4 qts. of oil puts it at the top of the sight window which is the max. Then run it 6,000 miles without having to add any before the next change. This works on my '08 and it did on my '05 too.
Also, I pull the drain plug as there is some dirty oil that comes out of there even after dropping the filer plate. What do you save by not pulling the drain bolt, 1 min.?
