How much oil does my 5.4 07 F150 hold?

So, how much does it hold? I searched the owners manuel...and did not find it. I guess that I am a dumbass for looking in the "Engine Oil" section.

I am just nervous because the place where I take it, put in seven quarts. I pulled the stick, and I kinda think that there is too much. When I get a reply, I am gonna park it out front where the pavement is level. As of now, my truck sits on an incline...this worries me

Damn you Jiffy Lube thread! It got me thinkin', which I guess is a good thing. Ignorance is Bliss! To bad I joined this site and am learnin' stuff.

Well, that is not all bad! I try to watch anyone that works on mine. I don't trust the lube shops at all.

No its not...I even marked my oil filter today with a sharpie. Just to be safe, the next time I get my oil changed, I will know if it was replaced.

Good idea. I get mine changed at the dealer, at about half the cost of the lube joint. Even there, i check my oil level before i leave. One time, they put in only six quarts.
