2001 Solara SLE V6. How many quarts of oil does this use? 7? Also, it has about 95K, which synthetic should I use?

Thanks!

If you have not been using synthetic oil till now, i would not recommend switching to it. Use any quality regular oil and change it and the filter every 3500-4000 miles. I did that for every car I've owned, including the Solara I just traded in with 145k miles on it. I never had a problem with sludge build-up or oil burning.

oil

The best 5-30 synthetic is the one on sale, especially if you change it every 5 thousand miles.
Also it holds 5 quarts with a filter change. (I own one and change my own oil).

Name brand conventional oil - change it around 3k or when it starts to turn color youll never have a problem
I cant let my oil go to 5k its just not right
Synthetic or not its still colored and somewhat worn and burnt after 3k so why waste the money on Syn
If your incapable of changing your oil at around 3k go with the synthetic it will help with the slight neglect
Just my opinion
