How much oil does a 1991 F150 XL hold? I need to replace my oil pan

I need to replace the oil pan on my truck, my brother said i need to know the amount of oil it holds, does any one know and do i even need to know. On jegs.com I found one that said it would fit, does it even matter, if Jegs said it will fit I woundln't need to know how much oil it needs should I? And do i need a oil pan gasket and bolts? Please help, thanks

These trucks hold 6 quarts including filter, so the pan should hold somewhere around 5 quarts. You should be able to re-use the original bolts as long as they are in good shape, but you should definitely get a new gasket. One piece rubber gaskets from the dealer (or Fel-Pro) are the best way to go for a gasket.

Yes you can reuse the bolts,the felpro is a pretty good gasket. When you place the gasket onto the pan,I usually use a couple of bolts to hold the gasket in place while putting the oil pan back on.Here's a link to the Ford Truck Oil Pan section on our site,if you also need a pan.

You can also use a bit of RTV in spots if the gasket wants to fold or bed for some reason. You don't need a lot, but it can help for those hard to reach areas to ensure the gasket stays in place.

i used rtv on my intake manifold gasket, i'm not doing the pan yet cause i have to drop the tranny, that may be a project for spring break or i might do it over the summer. I don't think the pans that bad but it is rusted and i just dont wanna chance it.
