There have been many threads and polls concerning oil capacity in the 5.3L. I have a link to a GM Media site and was doing a little research. You will see in the link below, according to this info, GM SUVs such as the Yuk and Burb show an engine oil capacity of 5.8 qts and the Pick Ups show 6.0 qts. I realize this is almost like splitting hairs but you have read posts, including mine, that claim 6.0 qts overfills the 5.3L. On mine, 6.0 qts puts the oil about 1/8" over the full mark on the dip stick. .2 of a qt would equate to 6.4 ozs, again not a big deal but I am betting this is where my over full issue is coming from.
I am assuming the oil pan must be a little different between the pick up 5.3 and the SUV engine due to differences in the front suspension??
Check the link out for yourself. GM Media
You will need to click on the "specifications" and scroll down to the "capacities" section.
Whether it matters to you or not, the link contains other good info and specs.
