1. The old 2.2L Ecotec was ideally suited for changing the filter with minimal oil loss. I'm not sure about the 1.4 turbo.

2. Don't think of the top line on the dipstick as the 'full' line, think of it as the 'maximum' line.
Put four quarts in, and if the oil level stays above the minimum line everything's fine. If it drops to the minimum line, add a quart.

One thing I have never completely figure out on this car is the maximum line. Is the maximum line the top line below the cross hatch, or is it the top of the cross hatch area?
I'm not familiar with the LUV and LUJ dipsticks, but generally speaking, the crosshatched area is the good zone. Below the crosshatched area would be the 'possible oil starvation at redline' area.
