Please fill out the following to ask a question.

MAKE: Ford
MODEL: Escape
YEAR: 2014
MILES: 38,000
ENGINE: 1.6 eco-boost
DESCRIBE ISSUE.... Excuse the language, but confused as h***.
What should the oil level be on a 1.6 eco-boost?
Was there a recall on the dipstick?
One person at dealer says 4.3 quarts of oil, after first person tells me 5+ quarts.
When I bought the SUV the oil level is about 1" above full mark ( Last fall).
The dipstick is 18.5" to full mark, I have been told this is a defective dipstick and has a recall.
What should the inches from top shoulder of dipstick be when oil is full ?
It's about time to change oil and I am lost.
Thanks!

Do you want to know capacity with, or without filter? Both ways, I expect...

PS: even 4.3 qts seems excessive with filter for such a small engine. I would be very skeptical of "5+"
