Is this manual messed up? I've never had a V6 that took less than at least 4 1/2 quarts.
Anybody else know how many quarts to use for a 2000 Nissan V6?
Are the newer ones the same? Just sounded messed up to me.
Doing the oil change tomorrow and didn't know how much to put back in.
I have a 4cyl, so I can't help much, but when you put oil back into the engine, just put the 3 3/4 quarts and run the engine for a few minutes. Then check the level. That would be the easiest way. If you aren't too sure about doing it that way, do a search here on this forum and on the regular internet. Good luck
I just looked at the owner's manual at courtesy parts.com(because it is too damn cold to go outside and get the manual), and it said for the v6 3 1/2 qts.

I also read on a forum at edmunds.com that someone had the same question, I did not search through all the pages, but the fact that someone else had the question leads me to believe that it is right if they too are seeing that it only takes 3 1/2 qts.
It is pretty interesting that my 4cyl takes a 1/4 more than your v6.
Just whatever you do, don't overfill it!
