Start the engine and let it run for a few minutes, turn off the ignition, and then allow the oil to drain back down to the oil pan for at least 5 to 10 minutes.

Pull out the dipstick, wipe it clean with a paper towel, re-insert the dipstick and pull it out again to check the oil level.

If necessary, slowly pour in more oil and repeatedly check the level on the dipstick until it reaches just at or below the top of the cross hatched area which indicates the "Max" or "Full" line.

You may not need to pour in the entire 5.7 U.S. quarts (5.5L) of new oil to reach the correct oil level depending on how long you allowed the old oil to drain out.

Replace the oil filler cap by twisting it on in the clockwise direction to just past hand tight and re-insert the oil level dipstick.

If you removed the engine cover, gently push it back down in to place.

Be sure to record the oil change in your service records.

It's also a good idea to check your driveway, garage or parking spot during the next few days for fresh drops of oil that might indicate a leak from the drain bolt or the filter housing.
