I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee V6 4.0L i just changed the oil and i only put in 5 qts and a few ounces on the dip stick it reads ok. Now in my owners manuel it says it holds 6qts with oil filter.

The last time i had someone else change it and going by the dip stick it had to much in it.

That sounds about right any idea why the manuel says 6qts?

The oil capacity of the 4.0 L and the 4.7L V8 is 6 qts.
With an oil and filter change the dip sticks for the '99 up show full after adding about 5 and 1/2 qts. Sometimes you cant get all the oil out so use the dip stick as reference.
