How bout you stop by the track and I'll buckle you into the passengers seat and run laps. Then drop a quart or two and do it again. If the oil pressure holds steady, or you puke in your helmet, then you buy gas and burgers?This doesn’t sound like the best advice I’ve ever heard… call me crazy but I feel like the manufacturer specified amount of oil is probably a good idea.
ThisI haven't read anywhere on the thread that you actually checked the dip stick. If so, was it low or was it OK? Maybe the Service Tech. put the correct amount in and the Service Dept. computer program auto-filled the wrong amount of oil on the invoice?
If you can drive fast enough to make me puke in my helmet I’ll buy all the gas and burgers you want. If you make me puke in my helmet because a smooth apex exceeds your ability you’re buying the burgers.How bout you stop by the track and I'll buckle you into the passengers seat and run laps.

My 2017 5.0 is 8.5qts and its full.I told the guy what my manual said, he even said that manuals are generic and don't always have the right info. What nerve!
I have never had such a hard time with a dipstick in any of the cars I have ever owned. I remember when I had an 86 Trans Am I would check it every two weeks and was a breeze. My last few cars had me so spoiled I don't even check anymore. The Mustang's wants to fight me as I'm putting it back in! lol.
So how was this solved? Did you go back and make them put another 1.5 quarts in or did you check your dipstick and realize you had 10 quarts?Hey guys,
I just went for the first oil change since I bought my used 2019 GT PP1 in September. Everywhere I look, owners manual, this forum, YouTube, Ford's website, it says the 5.0 takes 10qts. The dealer put in 8.5qts. Only reason I knew they put in less was I looked at the bill when I got home and saw I was charged for only 9qts. The person on the phone told me they were looking at the info on the computer and because my car doesnt have the track pack, it only takes 8.5qts. I can't find anything to validate that. That dipstick is a pain in the neck to accurately read so I am second guessing myself. How much should my car actually take? Also I saw on Ford's website that intervals between oil changes says 10,000 miles, the dealer says 5,000, which interval would you do?
The dealer is an hour a way I was not going back for 1.5 quarts of oil. I checked the dipstick from the onset, as stated in the first post, how else would I know this dipstick is a pain in the neck. I constantly had oil on one dside of the stick and none on the other side. After I added a quart, there was oil on both sides of the stick, so it was 1.5 low. I then added two cans of Liqui Moly Ceratec instead of the extra oil.So how was this solved? Did you go back and make them put another 1.5 quarts in or did you check your dipstick and realize you had 10 quarts?
