Either you have the dorn dip rod in her truck or you have actually the just 4.7L that just holds 5 qts of oil. If you examine your owner manual, it speak you 6 qts. Not acquiring down on you man and also not disputing her word, yet every 4.7L I know of takes 6 qts. Simply a thought, the avoid cap on her dip stick where it goes right into the tube has not slipped up on the stick has actually it?bwdakrt

I"ll inspect that out, but I"m pretty specific there is nothing wrong through the dipstick. Is there a means to tell if it might have to be replaced and is the not correct one? probably someone can measure their"s come compare?I simply took the quart out around 10 min ago, and it"s right on the heat now.Some guys were talking around their oil press before. As much as I deserve to see it"s been running regular before, and it tho was v 6 qts. Just over the short line under idle and also just below the High line while driving.Otherwise, um, yeah...maybe I have the only 4.7 in the civilization that take away 5 qts........LOL.

Gotta let it drainpipe longer...simple together that. Checked out it before.I allow mine drain for some time v the plug and also filter both out, make sure its not nose down on a hill, I usually jack mine up a tad to aid drain oil from the heads.I constantly put 6qt in mine, its usually a tick under full to boot.

You may definitely be correct.How long is "some time"? ns warmed that up, no hot, yet warm, climate let it drain for probably 15 minutes while I had actually to walk to the neighbor"s residence to borrow a filter wrench (my old one was also small). But yeah, i didn"t have my ramps with me here and I"ll usually placed it increase on those, therefore it need to work better next time.Now I just want come be sure that I"ve obtained the ideal dipstick. I"d dislike to journey 3000 an ext miles, have actually this occur again, and realize it"s been a quart under the whole time.

nothing"s wrong through yours mine takes roughly 5.5 qt hot and completely drained through the frount jacked up slightly. I have actually done a cold oil change to gain it over with and only had actually to placed in 5 quarts all said and also done.now mine atf that"s another story.
Dip sticks room all different, no way you have the dorn one. 4.7l stick have to be a great bit longer as that goes roughly the back of the engine, pushrod engines have the dip stick on the side.I"m top top my way to change my fiance"s oil ideal now. 2.8l VR6 and also it bring away 6qts...I think it"s got sufficient oil!

may ns ask what type of oil you put in? I recognize some brands space either over filled or underfill your qt"s. So maybe it to be over filled for 5 QT. If you recognize someone v a 4.7 local you can ask if you could use your dip stick to test a theroy.

nuttin favor a little block and a 4speed at the end of the main ! me and my impala tearin up the streets!:drive: might you cruze on 4:88"s or would you lose???
Level surface--checkFilter--checkRun the engine--check4.7L--GuaranteedStill increase to about the N where it says do NOT OVERFILLWhen ns poured the oil indigenous the pan ago into the 5 qt jug that the new stuff had come in, the filled it. But I didn"t execute that till I had already put every 6 in, that course. So basically what I"m speak is, ns only gained 5 qts OUT i guess.Still puzzled...Oh, and what"s the easiest means to drain off a quart? open up the plug for 2 seconds? Not sure I have actually any far better options obtainable to me here.

You proclaimed you confirm the Filter. Go that mean you readjusted it??? remember the filter stop a quart the oil in itself. My guess is that your overcompensating.rimfire,22:wave:
