Default oil capacity charts?

Does anyone know of a good website where I can enter in a year, make, model, and engine of a vehicle, and it will tell me how many quarts of oil I need to pour in for an oil change? I know the owners manual says it, but sometimes I do oil changes for my relatives, and they don't have their owners manuals.

I usually have to GiGGle it and see and sometimes it right and sometimes wrong so I buy an extra couple quarts, never a bad idea to have extra oil on hand and hell if its for a relation, I just give them, the extra quart's and tell them here's the receipt you can return it if you don't want it... but your gonna pay me for it... that is if I paid out of pocket for it... but best to let them waste the time and fuel to pick up what's needed and bring it all to me.

Default Here is a Reference Site

You might want to bookmark this site. It's hawking Amsoil but, it has lube specs and capacities. It came up spot on for an old Pathfinder 3.6 Qts.

Yeah when I first looked at it, I couldn't find capacities either. You'd think it would be right at the top where it suggests the oil type. You have to scroll down to where it says CAPACITIES. I looked up a 99 Tahoe and it says 5 qts.

I just changed oil in a 2007 Durango and the dipstick said full at 6 quarts. The website calls for 5.9... Close enough for me!

Looks to be a good source of info. Now if I can only remember that I bookmarked it when I might need it. Thanks.
