2004 FORD F150 5.4 FX4 4x4 oil change

I just changed the oil in my truck the book called for 7 quarts, I also changed the filter, I dumped 7 quarts into it, started the engine and let it run for a couple of minutes, waited probably 20 minutes and checked the level of oil on the dipstick and it was only half ways between the low level line and the full level line does it take 7.5 quarts with a filter change or should i just as i did and dump 7 quarts in it and leave it alone.

it's 7 qts only

your oil level is just fine.


anything between "Add Oil" and "Full" is considered normal

I think the older 5.4's took 6 but I know these newer 5.4's are oil hogs lol.
