How many quarters of oil should I add?

History

I just changed the oil in my 2000 Mazda Protegé. The owner's manual recommends 2.9 quarts for the 1.6 liter engine. I put in 3 quarts. The ifixit guide recommends 4 quarts.

Which amount is correct?

sn0man, 3.4 quarts without oil filter replacement and 3.8-4.0 quarts with oil filter replacement. Best thing to do, check your dipstick after you have the minimum amount in it, and ran the engine for a few minutes. Make sure that the oil level shows on the dipstick as your manual suggest. The other thing I always do, I prefill the oil filter with engine oil, this minimize the run time until the filter fills. Hope this helps, good luck.
