I can't find the thread either but between the dealer and a call to Ford (Since its not in the owners manual) the correct amount for the 2.5 liter engine is 5.7 quarts with filter. (Assuming you have the 2.5)

and to further confuse the issue .............

from the manual

4.3 qts with filter

4 qts without changing filter

page 196 of owners manual

http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/Catalog/owner_information/2014-transitconnect-owner-manual-version-1_EN-US_11_2013.pdf

that was from printing #1 of the manual

printing #2 has it listed as omni phil says 5.7 qts. for the 2.5 liter on page 197

Yeah, I went down this road. The dealer told me 5 quarts, Ford told me 6. I finally found the right guy of at Ford customer service. 5.7 quarts. And that amount brought me pretty close to the full mark on the dipstick after it was changed. I checked a bunch of times because I didn't believe anyone, lol

My manual does not seem all that confusing.  At least I wasn't confused.

Okay, so based on what I see, the oil filter holds 0.3 qt.  32 ounces to a quart.  Somehow, 9.6 ounces will fit into the filter.  And for whatever reason, you want to top off the engine oil to the top of the mark on the dipstick, it takes 0.8 qt.  That is about 25.6 ounces.  But the real numbers to pay attention to is the 5.7 qts capacity with filter + the 0.8 qt top-up.  

 

Now what do you do with the extra 0.3 qt left over at every oil change?

I think I'll take that leftover 0.3 quart, and just pour it into the engine.  It's doing nothing for me by just sitting on the shelf.

How is it, that you couldn't find it in the owners manual?

52 seconds in.  "it was on sale at Wal*Mart"

 

Does this guy own a shop?  Or is he just another home wrencher?  I can't think of any shops where they are buying from Wal*Mart when it's on sale for $5 a quart.  Me.  I buy oil on sale, or when there's a coupon.  But if you have a shop, you need to buy from your distributor, and get a fast delivery.......who has the time to go shopping at Wal*Mart, when you're trying to run a business?
