I just purchased it and it did not come with an owners manual. I put in 3.5 qts. and the dipstick shows its full, is that all it holds?

    My 2001 Civic holds 3.4 qts. I realize there might be a difference between the 2000 and 2001, bit I suspect that's not the case.

    Thanks for the feedback, I drained out over 4 qts. , I suspect the dealer had overfilled it, (bought it from a Nissan dealer) and did not know the correct amount to put in. Anyway, there's Amsoil in it now, next I'm changing the auto trans fluid and filter. Don

    Mine has the D16Y7 (plain ole 4 banger non V-TEC) engine and the docs say 3.6 quarts with filter, 3.3 quarts without. D16Y5 & Y8s 3.3 with filter, 3.0 without. The engine & transmission type is stamped on the block and is part of the VIN (when decoded) To get the most from your car RTFM (read the fine manual) hey I could be in marketing. Happy New Year !
