Hello All,

I have a 2006 C6 base model and the owner's manual says the engine oil capacity is 5.5 quarts but 6 quarts for the Z51 package. I know the Z51 package has stiffer suspension and better brakes but does it really hold more oil?
When I put 5.5 quarts in my engine, the dip stick level is on the middle hole of the three hole indicator but if I add a half a quart more, the dip stick level is on the top hole.
A friend of mine said maybe there's an oil cooler, but why does my dip stick show like I can add the half quart to get it full?
Thanks,

Mike

The Z51 does include an oil cooler.
