    Oil capacity....?

    Just had a fright checking my oil this morning - NOTHING on the dipstick!!

    Must admit to being guilty of not looking at it for ages - just lazy I suppose.

    It took 2.5 litres to fill it back to normal!!
    So does anyone know the overall capacity of a 2002 1.6 16v engine?

    I think its been loosing oil - I noticed a drop on the garage floor a few months ago and round the bottom of the engine, near the gear linkage, was damp with oil. Again laziness, I should have got it up on the ramps and had a proper look, will do at weekend now - AND keep a closer eye on the level too!
    ... indicators do not give you right of way!!!
