My 88 Crown Vic with the 5.0 and double hump pan shows 1 quart OVER after an oil change, if I add the amount FORD says it takes.

I tried just filling it to the full mark. But if I let it get 1/2 qt down from the "FULL" mark, I get a check oil light.

Overall I have found letting the car sit over night or at least 4 hours gives me the most consistant readings.
