Add till the oil is between the cross hatching on the dipstick, usually 4-5 quarts. You always want extra for top offs between changes.

Put in 4 quarts and start it and let it run for 30 seconds. Shut it of and let it sit for a couple of minutes and check the oil. Add additional oil until the proper level is reached on the dipstick.
