On just around every 318 and 360 I have owned I have put between 5 1/2 and also 6 quarts in to do the dipstick check out correctly. I do use the much longer filters. Never have been impressed v the "shorty" filters that come on them. That part shouldn"t it is in a factor, since the filter is over the oil level once cold. Several of the larger hemi"s only took 4 quarts. I"m talking about 50"s and also 60"s models here. And yes, the owner hand-operated says 5 quarts top top both engines through a filter change.I height it off to the level on the dipstick and also call the good. Top top one van I had I was constantly a half quart low. I could readjust it and also top that off and a week later it would be down. So I would certainly put enough in come level it off again and in a mainly the exact same thing would certainly happen. I would certainly leave it alone and it would remain at fifty percent a quart low, not using any more until maybe the 2000 mile mark. I suspected the dipstick to be wrong and also I was over pour it until it is full it by as lot as a quart. Ns finally referred to as that level the full mark and also had no problems for numerous miles in that truck.
