    Well, if you don't have the owners manual, start with 4 quarts, and check the dipstick. Add a quart at a time until it's at the proper level on the stick, then start the engine and let it run until you have oil pressure, or the oil light goes out, then check and adjust the oil level until it's correct. Just remember how much you used so you'll know for next time.
