1994 Camaro 3.4L Oil Specifications

by John Walker

In 1994, Chevrolet produced the Camaro with a 3.4-liter six-cylinder and a 5.7-liter eight-cylinder engine. The 3.4-liter (3.4L) version is a fuel-injected gasoline engine. As with other engines more than a decade old, using a high-mileage or synthetic oil and oil filter helps preserve the quality of this engine's seals.

Oil Weight and Amounts

The 1994 Camaro needs 4.1 quarts of SAE 5w30 engine oil. Factory recommendations include the use of synthetic oils.

Filter and Torque

Use the WIX 51040 oil filter or other manufacturer's equivalent with this engine. The drain plug torques to 18 foot-lbs. of torque.

Additional Recommendations

With older engines, using an oil additive at each oil change increases vehicle's lifespan. The recommended oil weight works well in both cold and warm weather. When removing the drain plug, always inspect the plug and gasket for damage. Replace either the plug or gasket as necessary.
