Red face How many quarts of oil in 5.7? Stupid question? Really?

Every time I go in for an oil change at dealer, it's either over-filled or under-filled or we

end up in a long conversation about how many quarts REALLY go in the 5.7....

7 reads above the full zone, so every time it has to be played with until it is right.

Has anyone else had this problem? Is there an official answer?

Please feel free to reply with a link if this was discussed before and my search missed it. Thanks in advance!

7 quarts on the dot and instead if you cant do the changes yourself just buy the oil before hand and the filter as well 7 quarts of whatever you use iuse mobil1 synthetic with a k&n oil filter and bring it tothem this way you pick the quality and you make sure there is enough in there each and every time.And on a side note make sure its 5w-20

If you add seven quarts of oil to a seven-quart-capacity engine that was just drained, it'll be over-filled. Wouldn't surprise me that if you collected all the oil left after a long drain, you'd come up with 1/2 - 3/4 of a quart. A lot of that won't come out if you let it drain overnight. I fill my filter, add the rest of the jug to the crankcase and back it off the ramps. After it's settled for a few minutes, I check the level and add accordingly.

7 quarts will exceed my Safe Line by about 3/8 of an inch.
IMO, there is an engineering defect with the dip-stick.

The correct amount is 7 quarts for all modern (5.7 and 6.1) hemi's. And yes the oil will be slightly above the 'full' line on the dipstick. Obviously make sure you drain the old oil thoroughly (until it's just a drip) - - but it's nothing to worry about.

Mine goes over maybe a millimeter from the full line with a full seven quarts added hmm then again i let it drain fora good while not sure if that makes a difference or not.
