I recently bought a '98 5.7 litre suburban. Ive seen many posts that have said this motor takes 5 quarts. I changed the oil today and put in 5 quarts. It measured about an inch high on the dip stick. I drained about a quart and the level is fine now according to the dip stick.
Does this sound correct? 4 quarts?
If this isnt right I am wondering if maybe I dont have a dip stick that is the correct length.

on my 99 5.7L I always used 5 quarts with a oil change and filter.
