How much oil does a Chevy Malibu take?

The 2021 Chevrolet Malibu with the 1.5L 4-cyl engine (engine code LFV Turbo) takes 4.2 quarts (with filter) of 0W-20 synthetic oil. The Honda Civic with a 2.0L 4-cyl engine (engine code LTG Turbo) takes 5 quarts (with filter) of 5W-30 synthetic oil. A new oil filter and a crush washer are required.

Regular oil changes can help improve the performance and fuel economy of your Chevrolet car, truck, or SUV. Many older-model Chevrolet vehicles, including those manufactured without or before the creation of the Oil Life Monitoring System, require oil changes at 4,000-mile intervals.

However, thanks to advances in engine technologies, newer models have a much longer range between oil changes. Always refer to your Chevrolet vehicle Owner’s Manual for oil-change intervals for your specific vehicle.

Certified Service technicians at your Chevrolet dealer are expertly trained to understand how your vehicle uses its oil and how it monitors oil life. An oil change from a Certified Service technician not only gives you great service, convenience, and a great price, but you also get the added value of their expertise on your Chevrolet vehicle.
