Just changed my oil. Gotta say way easier than my old 95 gmc sierra. Love the location of the oil filter, really easy to get to.

Just changed the oil and filter, put in 7 quarts. It's reading high on the dip stick while cold. Says it should read closer to the lower end of the min/max when cold.

So is it 7 quarts or 6 for a 2010 Ram 1500 with 5.7 engine?

Do we have to drain some back off now since it says not to overfill?

Default oil

It is always 7 qts and a filter. Have you started your engine to fill the new filter yet? That will take the level down a bit.

Thanks. Yeah I ran it around the neighborhood (about 2 miles), let it set a few mins, checked and it was still above the line. Maybe I should pre-fill the filter next time?
