Yah it came with that cheap blue foam washer thing. Started leaking within two days of my last oil change. I'm gonna take it off, scrape the washer off, and use a real washer this time.

Just go to the parts store and ask, they will be able to give you the right info.

Double checking, It's 15 quarts, 14 in the engine and 1 in the filter right?

15 quarts total. 2ish in the filter, then the rest go in the motor.

And I just picked up a pack of the copper washers at Advance yesterday. Think it was like $5 for a 3 pack.

Do you guys fill the filter housing, then dump the rest in the engine, or do you dump all of it in the engine?

I only changed the oil one time, but didn't fill the filter housing. What can happen?
