Nope...I had filled my '97 V6 with 4qts (and new filter) when I did my first oil change and it was too much. 3.5qts max on mine. I also checked in my owners manual and it also states 3.5qt. (Page 178 - Fluid Capacities)

Hey Bernd, my 2000 owner's manual calls for 4 quarts with oil and filter. And 4 quarts fills it exactly to the full mark. My truck was built early in 2000 (Oct 99). Why all the differences??

I just purchased a '91 Dakota with the 3.9 V6 without an owners manual. My Haynes manual says 4 quarts, is this right? Any input is appreciated.

Yea, my Haynes Manual states 4 Quarts on my '98. Seems to be just a tad bit over the fullmark when I change and refill.

4 qts is what my truck is.a guy at the dealership told me when changing oil in a dodge they usually keep it to the amount of liters the engine is as a guide line.eg.3.9 liter takes 3.9 liters of oil.can't say i know if he's right but it works for mine and my buddys 4.7(he's 5 but close enough)

99 3.9 4x4
