2002 M111 oil capacity

At the last 3 free services, the dealer added 7, 6 and 6 quarts of oil and replaced the filter. The manual calls for 7.5 qts. I have checked the dipstick and it shows full and the electronic display says "oil level ok". I plan to change my own oil now and want to know the correct capacity.

Exclamation

The M111.981 engine should take 7.0 qts on an oil change!

oil capacity 2002 M111 engine

My mistake. I checked the manual last night and it calls for 7.4 qts or 7.0 liters. I still am not sure of the capacity .

I'm sure M.B. Doc would know.
Why don't you pour in 7 quarts, run the engine for a few seconds, let it sit for a minute or two, and then check your oil level with the dipstick ?

Oops...not sure if a 2002 even has a dipstick.

I trust his advice, but only after he hit 5000 posts...

This all depends on the oil level in the tech' daily ride
