1995 5.8 oil capacity

I just purchased a 1995 F150 4x4 with a 5.8L motor.The owners guide says 6 qts. with filter.So,without question, I change the filter and put in 6qts.,start the truck,check for leaks,and then shut it off.When I checked the dipstick it read about 1 qt. over full.Her is my question,do you put in 6qts. or go by the dipstick and put in 5.25qts. to put it right on full?Thanks in advance for any input.

John, when I change my oil in my 93, I always put the 6 qrts in, and it reads overfilled. you might try to put the 5.25 in and drive it a day and check it when the engine is cold again. Ill bet you need to fill the remainder in at that time!!!!

I believe the 4 wheel drive's all use 6 quarts. Go by the owner's manual. The filter holds a good part of a quart... and it's gotta fill up. Make sure it's on absolutly level ground. My F250 w/ 460 will read incorrectly if it's not perfecly level.
