    Did you forget which engine you have too? Either way 4 or 6 cly, put in 4 qts. start engine be sure oil light goes off or gauge showes pressure, turn off engine and check dip stick, top off as needed, prob. another 1/2 qt. or so.
    So get 5 qts. with filter change! Now, lube shop is cheaper than doing it yourself and less mess. No old oil to dispose of either! Up to you.

    I agree, was thinking walmart, i dont see how they do it as cheap as they do. Cant do it myself for that even with special deals! I guess some folks just like doing it themselves, nothing wrong with that either.
