I think it is a little over 4 quarts with filter so I would get at least 5 quarts. I think you are better off with a 10-30 or 10-40 unless you are some place realy cold.

Re: oil capacity of 1.6 16 valve

mine holds 5 exactly or just a bit under 5 or just over 5, I usually get 6 quarts to keep one under the hood for later, just in case I need it or someone else needs it.

szki is right, it really is up to you on the weight.
the manual recomends 5w10 though, but it seems that is what is recomended for all cars now.

by the way how are you doing these days?
been a while since I have been able to sit down and check the board out.
