Why would only a quart of oil drain when the oil plug is pulled and the dipstick still show only 1 quart low on a 91 Grand Marquis?

Do you have your car on jack stands, or jacked up when changing the oil? If so you might want to see if the car is in a major incline (i.e. front of car up in the air.) If that is the case, then none of your oil is going to come close to your drain hole. its all in the back of the pan. THE CAR HAS 2 (DRAIN PLUGS) TAKE OUT BOTH & U SHOULD GET 5 QUARTS OUT INCLUDING THE OIL FILTER.(YES) TWO PLUGS ON THE SAME OIL PAN !IF THE CAR WAS ON THAT MUCH OF AN INCLINE - YOUR CAR WOULD BE STANDING ON IT'S BUMPER.

Are you an idiot? Remove the drain plug, drain the oil, unscrew the filter, put on a new one, refill with oil. Who doesn't know that?
