Park the vehicle on a level surface. Drain the oil and replace the filter. Add 4 quarts of oil and start the engine. Run for 1 minute and shut the engine off. Wait one hour and then check the oil level. Add enough oil to reach the full mark, if it is not already full. You now know what the capacity is.
