What unit of measure?

40 what of oil?

Oil is usually sold by quart or liter, not gallon.

120 / 40 is only 3.00, i changed number for easy math, $3.00 quart about right for some places.

excess oil

I can't belive that these so called service centers don't have the knowledge to look up specs on internet or maintenance book to verify what they are doing.Are these places a dying breed and what we have to look forward too? I was an aircraft mechanic for 20 years and would not have even thought to make even a tiny mistake without being called out on it quickly!

I don`t use Freightliner Vancouver for this and many other incidents that have occured. Don`t recommend them either.
I don't know of a FL dealer/shop in Vancouver. The nearest ones are in Portland OR, some 5 miles away and the other is in Ridgefield, WA.
Or do you mean that upstart in BC?

They may had got the C7 mixed up with the C9 because the 2006 Country Coach we just got has a C9 in it and it holds 40qts with filter.

After a Freightliner shop in Tn. put 26 qts in my transmission I told myself NO! S.O.B. would touch it as long as I can get my butt under my RV. It's really easier than most people think. Jack stands are a must though.

Think of the poor guy that followed you home. Probably 12qts of oil from your home and the shop on peoples windshields .
My guess is your not more than a gallon over full by now.

Just got back from Freightliner and they said they couldn't have put 40 qts of oil or it would have been running out the dipstick. I then asked why I was charged for 40 qts then. Couldnt answer that but would refund me the charge for the extra 21 qts that they didnt put in. They then wanted me to bring it back and they would remove the extra oil that they didnt put in. There would be no problem with tne engine driving the 40 miles but to get it done as soon as possible. What a run around!!!!!! I think I will just remove the extra oil myself with an oil sampling pump through the dipstick tube and forget it. Thanks everyone.

I wonder if anyone has ever calibrated the oil stick so you know where you are.

Calibrate it to what? It should already show marks for low and full. It doesn't need to be exact. Its sorta like a toliet tank. It will work with a level give or take a couple quarts either way. Especially when talking about 19qts. You can run a car 3qts low on oil and not do any damage as long as you don't starve the pump. The pan is a reservoir holding access oil. Ideally you have 19qts but are probably fine with 16 or 22.

No it has not been calibrated. I called Cat and they gave me directions on how to do it.
