    Did you use a PF25 or 35 filter? If you used the small one, 25, try the 35 next time and you should be able to put in all 5 qts.

    Forgive me for this question, I am NOT trying to be a dummy, but did you check the oil level after you ran it for a couple of minutes, letting the pressure build, and let the filter fill?

    Reason I ask this is with a 1 quart NAPA Gold filter, my 406 take almost 5 and a half quarts.

    Speaking of filters, I use a STP S373 filter on my 350. Its about twice as long as the PF35...Holds somewhere close to 2 quarts. No clearance probs either. Hangs just even with the bottomof the oil pan. When full, its around 6 qts.

    Some of the police cars and city trucks that come in where i work run motor oil made for diesels. It meets the same requirements as gas plus it has a different additive to meet diesel specs. So basicaly its for gas or diesel.What ever you put it in it will meets all requirements.

    He must be talking about 15w40 works good in vehicles that see alot of low RPM. Gives great oil pressure too.
