I changed the engine oil and filter in my 4100 the other day and noticed that it takes a lot less oil than the owners manual calls for. Am I doing something wrong or is the manual incorrect?Harry

There have been several posts about this problem (I think it was on this board). I changed oil in my 4100 two weeks ago. With a new filter, my dip stick said full after only two quarts of oil. The manual is wrong. I think that the manual was written for a larger filter, rather than the miniature one that Deere puts on the tractor. Of course, there isn't room for a larger one.

Harry, It's very possible the manual is wrong. I bought a 4700 in July and the manual that came with the tractor had numerous mistakes in it. I call JD and got an updated manual about a month ago. The old manual said the engine oil capacity was 6.2 qt's the new one says 5.1, big diff. Just another problem with rushing a product to market. David

 jd4100 oil capacity

Just to add my two bits to the pile..... I changed the oil and filter on my 4100 a couple days ago and thanks to this thread I was careful about how much oil to use. It took two quarts to hit max on the dip stick, not the 2.8 the manual calls for. Now the only question to answer is wether the dipstick is properly calibrated.

I know this is an "older" thread, but I just wanted to say how grateful I am I read this ! I did my first
oil change and had I not read this, I would have been up the creek without a paddle and draining oil
all day. BTW, I added 2 quarts and that was still too much and I had to drain out a little more to get the
level below the "full" line on the stick. I had the tractor on level ground and let it drain to almost nothing
was coming out, so I was surprised that it took LESS than 2 quarts. Also, is the oil color supposed to
be dark ? I was expecting the dipstick to look nice and clear just like on a car after an oil change. The
oil on my tractor still has a black tinge to it.

If you allow the oil to go to 100 hrs then the oil will be very dark when drained. A little oil remaining in the engine will quickly discolor the new oil.
A diesel engine produces a lot more soot than a gasoline engine.

What is described sounds normal to me. I sometimes change oil around 50 hours and the new oil isn't entirely clean. The old oil is black and 'slops' when poured.

I take care to work the tractor when the engine temperature is well within the normal range. I think a cool running engine puts more soot and acids in the oil. I know the engine is in a good temperature range when if puffs a bit of light-gray smoke on acceleration. I'd suspect the engine needs some adjustment if there were more exhaust smoke.

There's a lot of reading in the archives about oil and filters. There's some indication that the filtering on some filters that cross-reference to factor filters may not be equivalent to factor filters. Some filters may have anti-drainback or bypass features that factory filters may have or lack. Using a filter with a feature that a factory filter lacks may or may not be an improvement. Sometimes warranty issues can become involved in things like parts substitutions.

Anyway, it takes a bit of time to sort out the issues. I usually go through one set of filters a year so the cost of factory filters isn't a big consideration--at least it hasn't motivated me to do the research I want to do before using a cross-referenced filter. But who knows, maybe some of the after-market filters are better than what I buy from NH.
