2019 Outback Limited 3.6R; Abyss Blue Pearl; Most of the Accessory Book
I just changed my oil and filter in my 19 3.6R, added 6.9 Qts, and ran it 5 minutes or so to check for leaks. I shut it down, waited about 2 minutes to check it, and it shows halfway between the 2 dots on the dipstick. I'm going to let it sit overnight and check it.You are overfilling the oil in your vehicle. When changing oil and oil filter it's only 6.9 quarts.
That's probably why folks are prone to over-filling, assuming that 6.9 Qts is really correct for the later models. The manual is not absolute and says that "each quantity indicated is only a guideline. The necessary quantity for replacement may differ slightly depending on temperature and other factors." (OwnersManual page 12-4). What "Factors" will make it take more oil? That makes no sense to me.
