i work at a independant quick lube shop, my boss tells me that certian cars will do that that certian ones need to be checked at operating temp.And others not. im pretty shure the 5.0 holds 5 quarts correct..?? but with the double sump im not shure. if i were you i would just change the oil when it is cold,find out what the recommend amount is add it, start the car to fill the filter(duh) and check it cold to see where its at. then just use where it is on the dipstick as you benchmark to add oil next time when it is cold.
