Thanks for all the info. Looks like I was misinformed regarding the 3JH4E oil capacity. After fixing the broken dipstick tube, I was advised by the original owner the motor took 5 qts. (I don't have any manuals). 5 qts seemed believable so in they went. Dipstick didn't show over full, but was told later by a marine mechanic
5qts was to much and that's why the front seal let go. I keep getting conflicting information about the capacity and cant find anything online. So, here's the dumb question of the month.......Anyone know the capacity ?? 2008/2009 3JH4E.
