Will the oil pans interchange between the 2.0L and 2.3L engines? If so, then maybe the dipstick is right and the dipstick who wrote the manual was wrong.
Or maybe Saab quietly corrected an error. Ford did that IMHO with the 4.6L V8, though of course never admitted it. Some of the '99-'04 Mustangs have this engine. The '99-'01 manuals specify 5 quarts. Then in '02-'04 they went to 6 quarts. Same engine, oil pan and dipstick tube. Only the manual and dipstick were changed.
Why? The theory is that under certain rpm and g-force conditions running with 5 quarts resulted in engines starved for oil and rod bearing damage.
My wife's sedately driven '01 stang has 6 quarts, and I have cheap peace of mind.
