I had a dreadful feeling before writing my post that you (willwren), would come back and say something like that.
Let me make this perfectly clear to you: I am not
advising anyone to fill up their crankcase up with 6 quarts of oil; I am simply stating that with my Buick, there has not been any problems. The OP asked for comments. My post was a comment only
; it was not intended to be advice in anyway-shape-or-form.
willwren - perhaps I should PM you with my phone number so I can explain this to you on the phone with clear cut concise words.
It doesn't matter what you implied or posted... You posted that you are running 6 QUARTS... and have no issues to date...
say a new member read that and then used 6 quarts and had problems with the 6 quarts...
and just because you aren't having any problems doesn't mean they another will not have the issues.. I will not recommend any more than 5 quarts in any 3800 V6... Most of the newer 3800 actually use 4.5 Quarts...
Every time you post we have to follow you and make sure we set things straight...
and how is anyone supposed to know what you mean?
... Oh yeah I'm running 6 quarts Eh.... Its all good.....
If I were running 6 quarts I sure as H*** would not recommend it to any of the members on any forum...
Its like saying its ok to put a 3.0 pulley on an M90 with no mods other than the pulley, then they have KR like mad... But oh wait that would be ok too.... Yeah you won't ping an engine to death... Then the motor goes boom...
I give up..
