The dipstick will answer your question. What I do is I put in 4 quarts of oil before I start the engine and then check the level via the dipstick. I than add a little bit at a time till I get to the full mark on the dipstick. That is the best way to do it. Not just blindly add X number of quarts. Being a little low is not a big deal. Putting in too much is bad. You should never overfill your crankcase. If you overfill the oil pan the crank will froth up the oil which introduces air in the system. The air displaces the oil in the critical bearing surfaces and you are not getting proper lubrication.Hello All
For The 2011 Honda Odyssey EX-L,...The Owners Manual Calls For 4.5 Qts. For Oil Change With Filter,...Is It Ok If I Put The Full 5 Qt In The Engine???
