Hey all. My 1993 EB with the 5.8 took 7 quarts (FL-1A included) to get up to the full line. From what I've read before, it should hold 6. Could my dipstick be wrong? The truck was on a level surface.

How long did you wait to check it after putting the sixth quart in, because cold oil will take a wile to run all the way into the pan.

How could I tell the difference between an aftermarket pan or OEM? I might go to the grave yard and try to find another dipstick and test it against mine

Well, you could measure the amount of oil that came out of it when full. Or look for a brand name or part number and look it up. My Canton Racing Offroad Dual Sump Pan holds 8 quarts + filter.

I let the truck idle for about 5 minutes.
yo O2,
any signs of Coolant in oil?

check;
dipstick tube fitment into the cylinder block
tube bracket to exhaust manifold stud; some are loosened during engine service

This is by Ford; "Checking the engine oil level:
1. Turn the engine off after it has warmed up and allow a few minutes for the engine oil to drain back into the oil pan."

No coolant in oil. I will check the bracket tomorrow. Thanks for the tip

Hmmm weird, my 95 5.8 holds 6 quarts and even at 6 quarts its a tad above the full mark.

Possible that you have a bigger pan, or there is a secondary oil filter or pre filter if you will on there, or maybe dipsticks are wrong? Idk just throwing out ideas
