With a filter change, you are exactly 7 quarts of oil. 5.6L is your motor's displacement. Essentially, in each cylinder the difference between the piston at top dead center and bottom dead center is your displacement. Each cylinder effectively has somewhere in the area of about 7/10 of a liter of displacement. .7 x 8 = 5.6. I hope that clears it up a bit.

My manual calls for 6.5 qts of oil, and that's what I put in it.



Some have noticed that to be at the "top" of the dipstick they need to add the additional .5 qt.



Essentially the more displacement the engine has, the more potential to generate power.

I also use exactly 6.5 quarts of oil and that brings it somewhere between the middle and the top of the acceptable range on the dipstick. I'm sure 7 will just bring it to the top but since I do changes at 3000 mile intervals using conventional Havoline 5W30 and I've never seen any burn-off, I'll stick with the 6.5 quarts of oil. For those using longer intervals, 7 quarts is probably a good idea in case of any burn off.

I use 6.5 qts.at oil and filter change to get close to the midway point on the marks and with the recent 9+,000 mile run it didn't burn any oil off according to the dipstick before and after observations..... <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/004.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt017' />

Yep, that's it! You are very perceptive and you hit the nail on the head!



Also, if you have the 18 inch tires, I believe they are 33 inches tall and that equates to 33 lbs. of pressure. It neat that Nissan matches the size nomenclature with the specification requirements. Four seats means four person capacity. It make everything easy, huh?



Any more questions? <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt017' />

Engine knock is a common problem associated with this motor. Many have quieted the knock with either using a high quality grounding kit (Active Tuning) or try using a full synthetic at your next oil change. I used to have the knock as well but now that I use a full synthetic and also have the grounding kit my truck runs much smoother. It's hard to say which one made the difference, but it (they) did.

I wouldn't call it a knock though. I would can it a tick. At least that's what my truck sounds like. My truck defenitly doesn't have a knock.



Now the 5.7 Hemi's....... those things knock like a !@#$%!

I was sortof surprised when I saw the electrical under the hood - looks like a wimpy 8 AWG ground main. I'm going to put in a good ground (1/0) for my audio, doing the frame and some engine location, too.



Can anyone point me to what points the grounding kit hits? Might hit a few of those points, too, since I am putting a distribution block under the hood for accessories, bed, cab, etc.



I'll also have a 20 F cap and 2nd battery on the 1/0 mains in the cab for the audio, but should be a pretty stable system when done.
