Everything I read says 6 quartsbut thats crap. took 7 1/2qts to get to full mark on dip stick on mine. 6 barely read on stick and 7 would put halfway between full and low.

Yup. Also, what size filter do you use? There are larger size filters that holds a bit more oil, if you know what I mean.

It almost always seems to be above 6 quarts but it does seem to vary slightly by vehicle so start with 6 and add as necessary. After you start and check for any possible leaks, turn off the engine and let sit for about 5 minutes to let the oil drain down for the most accurate reading. Using the standard filter - FL820S or similar shape/size will usually be 6.5 quarts on most.

fgials - I would suggest anything but Fram and other low end filters. They are well known to collapse and restrict oil pressure. I certainly would not use one to accomplish an extended drain interval.

No need to really debate it here - but I've seen first hand the problems caused by Fram. They will never be installed on any of my vehicles or my customer vehicles. There is plenty of data available online which you can review if you would like. The Motorcraft filter is only slightly more and worth it to me.

I am personally using Mobil 1 5w20 and the Motorcraft FL820S filter. Wix, Napa Gold, Purolator (makes Motorcraft) and Carquest Blue filters are also very good. I have a few customers running Amsoil and also Royal Purple in their 5.4 and 6.8's and are getting a lot of miles out of them. Use a good quality filter or you can restrict oil pressure and the engine will let you know with unpleasant noises.

If you truly were able to change out all of the fluid then the 4R100 holds about 16 quarts depending on which pan is on there (4x2 or 4x4). Doing a drain and fill of just the trans pan is about 5.5 - 6 quarts. I believe the RP Max ATF only comes in quarts or in 5 gallon containers.
