I try to find out about the correct oil filling of the 2,0 E and the 2,2 i engine.
Has anybody the numbers? I suppose they must differ a bit from the 1,9 S engine (3,3 litre from factory; 3,0 litre when exchanging incl.filtre). Thanks MIKE :rolleyes:

All the same in my books

"Oil Refill" Engine sump 3.8 litre (incl filter) for 1900; 2000 & 2200

Who ever changes the oil without changing the filter?
It has 0.5 litre of "dirty" oil in it........

Got the information from: "Car Service Data" compiled by J N Seale ISBN 0 600 33336 1 This shows the same capacity for 1.9; 2.0 & 2.2 motors.
Checked in the Holden LH Torana 1900cc Engine Service Manual (this is a standard 19S Opel Motor which Holden used): Engine Oil fill Capacity (less filter) 6.0 pts or 3.5 litres. Oil Filter Capacity 0.6 pts or 0.3 litres
So both sources add up to 3.8litres.
I just top up the new filter with new oil before installing it and put the rest of the 4 litre oil pack in to the motor - I guess an extra 200cc + or - lets it leak a bit before coming down to the "Full" mark on the dip stick ......

Just to confirm previous posts by another source, my Haynes manual for the 1.6S and 1.9S engines, says about oil cpacity:

Dry engine: 4.1lt
Refill with filter: 3.8lt
Refil without filter: 3.5lt

when in doubt drain, change oil, filter and refill to mark on dip stick run engine for 30 seconds ,stop and let it rest for 5 min and top up to mark (sounds like a cooking lesson :D )
works on any engine if you have the book or not :D just have the right dip stick :cool:

Guys, I'm really puzzled by now. In the attached OPEL-file it's stated like that: 3,3 litre when FIRST filled (back in '69 in the factory..), 3,0 litre later on (incl. exchange of oil filtre.Without filtre it's 2,75 l). Now that differs quite a bit from the 3,8/3,5 information. Anybody can bring light into this darkness?

the .3 litre is easy its whats left sitting in nooks and crannys and oilways the base and sides where it sticks :D

the other is in to the realms of myth and legend as to which is right but i would take opel hand books over a haynes or any other manuel (none of which are famed for there accuracy)

Possible Explaination

The earlier motors have cast ali oil pans with less capacity than the later pressed sheet metal ones .............. :eek:
