    6-7qts on a standard filter is fine (and no, even at 7qts static you get no crank in the oil. NOT static (which is what matters) you will have less than 6qts in the pan even with 7qts total and that is just at idle. NO WAY will windage be an issue.), anything less is going to spin a bearing if your car likes to eat the oil and you enjoy the strip.

    i checked the level again and it was fine... should i put in another .5 quart?
    I do a 6qt. oil change, I have had my vehicle for over 7 years, and never had a problem with any type of overfill issue.

    It will not hurt the vehicle to run it a 1/2 quart over, or 1 quart under for that matter.

    Most of the old hotrodders run the engine 1 qt under.

    And it is most of them who end up with spun mains and cause the mustang crowd to laugh at us about it. It is a pretty big stigma among hte mustang crowd that if you corner an F-body hard, you WILL spin a main. Not if you run 6+ qts though!

    The problem is these people run 5qts and then they use 1qt in 2500 miles b/c they run crap oil like Mobil 1 or something and then they take it through a corner at 5K rpm +.

    That means static there would be 4qts in the pan. Well at idle 1.5qts are circulating through the block and heads, meaning there is only 2.5qts in the pan...idling. So what do you think happens when bubba mashes the go-pedal and wraps it up to 5K rpm and slides through a corner? That's right. Oil starvation and a spun main.

    No problem! Read for a couple min in another New thread on oil issues and realized we covered the WHOLE spectrum before on this subject. NO Point in spending 5 min trying to explain what we already have in VAST detail.

    Hello, Just purchased a 99 camaro SS and was trying to find the right AC oil filter. The manual calls for a pf 44 which they no longer make. Advance has a AC Delco pf 46E. Is this the right filter? Please let me know. Thanks, Bob

    My last oil change, I switched from a AC PF61 to a Mobile 1 M1-107 on the advice of "Sarge" because the long filter has no anti drain back valve. I have noticed that on cold start ups, no more rattling piston slap or lifter noise. I am sold on the small filter. I might add that I changed from Pensoil Platinum to Mobile 1 EP, but I feel both are top shelf oils and that it is the filter that made difference. I used slightly less than 6 quarts on fill up.

    Almost a year old thread....

    But I would stay away from the 'E' version of ACdelco filters.

    Here is some good reading on filters:

    To throw a monkey wrench into the mix; the new LS1 oil pans come with fittings that accept the newer LS7-type filters. I removed the CTS/V oil pan from my LS6 and due to my time schedule I decided to buy a new LS1 pan from the dealer. When I tried to use the K&N HP-2006 I was used to it wouldn't fit. The new LS1 oil pans no longer have the anti-drainback valve installed. I think it's incorporated into the newer filters. I'd like to find a longer style of filter that fits the oil pan on my engine. I'm using the PF48 equivalent now.
