most ford gas engines take 5 quarts when you change both oil and filter

Quick way to check is after draining the oil and replacing the oil filter, fill crankcase with 5 Quarts and then start the motor. Run the motor until the oil pressure reads on the gage. Shut the motor off, let sit for a minute or two and check the oil. If it reads low add the appropriate amount of oil to the crankcase. Then write the number of quarts of oil required on a piece of tape and place the tape on the inside of the glovebox for future reference.
