Default Oil change link

Can someone please forward me the link to where I can find which synthetic oil (is best) to use for engine/primary/transmission and how much of it do I need?

You can also respond directly if thats easier for you.

Thank you

What year and model do you have?

The current models engine generally take 3 quarts (2.8 specifically)
The primary / transmission takes 1 quart.
