Pull out the yellow-handled dipstick and check the engine oil level. Slowly pour in the last quart of SAE 5W-20 oil and repeatedly check the dipstick until the level reaches just below the upper metal dot.

You may not need to use all 6 quarts of new oil depending on how long you allowed the old oil to drain out.

Be sure to check the oil level on the dipstick several times over the next week and watch your driveway for oil spots that may indicate a leak from the oil drain bolt or filter. Record the mileage and oil change details in your service record book.

    2010 CVPI. WalMart changed the oil, I checked the level 5 miles later. Very dirty oil. I was charged for 5 quarts. They suck out the oil through the dipstick. Should take 6. What’s up with the dirty oil and only 5 quarts?

    1. Hi there!
      Crown Vic takes 6 quarts of 5W-20 oil (with filter).
      Dirty Oil?
      1) They must not have drained all the oil.
      2) Do you use 5W-20 oil? Wrong Viscosity + frequent overheating = “dirty” oil.
      3) The wear of the piston group. Some of the unburned fuel enters the cylinder and piston clearance and mixes with the oil.
