thanks yo, thats all i needed, now that i think about it the pans are the same so it would have made sense for the dipsticks to be the same.

The dipstick on my g/f's sister's D16Z6 was a little bit shorter mine on my D15B2 (or it might have been the other way around)...

Her handle came off hers, and I was giving her one of mine off the D15B2 and it was as different size. When her origonal D16Z6 dipstick was on full...the D15B2 dipstick was 3/4 full.

IDK if they are supposed to be the same or not (hers could have been replaced at one point)...but in my case these were different:
93 EX (D16Z6) vs. 90 HB (D15B2)

The part number is different between the D16Z6 and D15B2/D16A6

a b16 dipstick is the same for d16 dipstick but b18 is different for some reason. Like 2mm off.

It should say in your owner's manual or on your factory airbox. If you don't have either of those, it'll be listed in a Chiltons/Haynes repair manual. If you don't have one, you should invest in one.

Off the top of my head, it's 3.3 quarts roughly or something close to that.
