How much oil does a 4.0 EF take? Got to change the oil on mum's tommorow to check for a suspected head gasket..

technically 5.5L IIRC

a 5L bottle generally puts it close enough.

the sump holds 5ltrs and the oil filter holds .5ltr all up 5.5ltr will put you exactly where you want your oil level too be.
