Have a 2015 Axis A20 with 350 5.7 PCM. Dealer did oil change and winterize. I took the first trip last weekend. Ran boat for about 15 mins, powered down, let it rest for 5 mins and checked the oil. Felt like dipstickwas reading high but it’s hard to tell with new oil and reading in the sun

I provided oil for the dealer (2 gallons). They returned one container with 2 quarts left. That puts 6 quarts in the system

What is your experience for 5.7 oil capacity. The manual doesn’t list capacity. It says fill to 4.5 quarts and add until dipstick reads full.

Thanks.

You need to check the oil while the boat is sitting flat on the trailer.

For reference...dealer was coy about telling me the oil capacity of the engine. I called PCM. Their “boat owners technical line” refers you back to the dealer. I hit zero for the operator and got a tech. They indicate between 5 and 6 quarts is the proper fill for the 5.7 in an Axis.

For the past three years I’ve performed every oil change on my 5.7 2015 Axis a20. My experience has been 4.5 quarts (including changing the filter). Not sure if I get 100% out. I use an extraction pump and hook it up to the drain tube.

Check your levels and be sure not to overfill

Good luck!

Error on the full side. Engine should consume any extra and more. ha
