I just purchased a truck a month ago. Did my first oil change today with mobile 1 synthetic. I have read on here it takes 5.5 quarts but i also have read it just takes 5 quarts. anyone do their own oil changed and how much do you put in? I would of measured the amount that came out but i already had oil in my oil bucket. I put 5.5 in but I have yet to drive it as it is my weekend warrior. I can easily drain .5 but what is your take?

Personally I'd drain a little to be safe. Next time dump about 4.5 quarts, start and let run for 30-45 seconds to fill the filter, shut off, wait 2-3 minutes for oil to drain back to pan and top off as needed.
