I have a 1994 Silverado 4x4.The manual says it takes 5 quarts with the
filter change too???????
I have always changed my own oil every 3 thousand miles and added 5
quarts.The dip stick reads full????
Is this wrong???

maybe the wrong example... kind of like when you order a new bowling
ball, the old one suddenly remembers how to throw strikes, like it's
saying "I'm in great shape, don't dump me!".. lol
I used to do the same thing with my '79 chevy pickup. 250 six cylinder.
When the rockers rattled enough I would stop and add oil. Eventually I just
rebuilt the motor. But that thing was tough, not powerful, but tough.
My '67 Chevelle 250 did burn 2 stroke oil, for a while.
Was on I 87 coming home from a snowmobile trip towing a trailer w/sleds and
burnt a piston. It was a sub zero day. Motor was pumping oil out and I
didn't have any more motor oil with me. All I had was 2 stroke oil so I
poured it in to get the 25 -30 miles to the next service area.
Damned if the oil girl made it and got me the rest of the 250 miles home on
She was smoking like a 2 stroker with that stuff in.
I figured the motor was toast anyway, it had high miles, and every mile
closer to home was a another buck off the tow bill.
The 2 stroke oil did clean up a sticky lifter though.........
"anything you say can & will be misquoted & used against you"
had a buddy in high school with an old chev half ton 4x4.
it ran out of oil and got so hot the motor wouldn't run. ...twice
but after it cooled we would pour oil in it and it would fire up....30,000
klm later it didn't even knock and the truck sold for more than he paid for
