Chevrolet Malibu Engine Oil Capacity (USA)

Chevrolet’s 2012 Malibu LS was equipped with a 2.4-litre inline four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission.

The 2.4-litre engine requires five quarts of oil to replenish the system after you have changed the oil and filter.

Chevrolet recommends ACDelco synthetic blend engine oil in combination with GM part number. ACDelco part number 12605566 and ACDelco part no. For the filter, use PF457G

Engine OIl Specs

The oil that is marked with the dexos1 logo indicates that it has met the specifications. For most applications, you should use SAE5W-30 oil.

For better performance and starting in frigid temperatures, SAE 0W-30 oil is recommended.

Chevy recommends that you do not use any other viscosity grade in your Malibu. After your oil change, don’t forget about resetting the oil life monitor.
