5.3 Oil Capacity

HI everyone... I recently got an 04 SSR and wanted to do my own oil change. What is the capacity of the 5.3L engine? What is the GM stock oil filter number?

Thanks ...

Don't know, but welcome, if I hadn't welcomed you before. This comes from Conroe, Texas.

I believe it's 6 gts. Don't know the filter num. Your local auto parts should know.

I was thinking it was 6 but I have heard that some 5.3L engines take slightly less than 6 quarts... depending on the type of filter and or oil pan design.

A 5.3 and 5.7 use 5 qts. with filter change. I can't remember the filter # but when you buy your oil they have lookup charts for every make and Model by the Filters. 4.5 qts. if you don't change the filter. I always fill the filter up with the new oil before I replace it. If you are patient enough and wait for the oil to absorb into the filter element, you will see that it will almost take a Qt. of oil. By doing this you will see almost immediate oil pressure. This saves on bearing wear

The book says 5.5 quarts & always a Delco filter! Good advice on filing the filter before installing.

I have a 2004 also. My advice is to register your SSR at mygmlink.com. You can view your manuals on line and keep track of all your vehicle needs, service reminders, recalls, etc. btw the online 2004 manual says the oil capacity is 6quarts with filter change for the 5.3. I personally use Mobil 1 5w30, but that is your call. I also always get a new oil drain plug washer fom the dealer for each oil change.
