Oil amount w/ filter, how much?

Okay, maybe I'm blind, and I'm just missing it when looking at the owner's manual.

I have a '08 Patriot, and going over the oil change. It says 4.5 quarts, but is that with a new filter change?

4.5 qts is 4.5 every oil change and you should be changen the filter every oil change so 4.5 should be right but still might vary a little

Also the Engine Oil Cooler will add an insignificant amount to the fill. Put in 4.5 qts, let it run and recheck your level. Very doubtful that you'll need to add more.

Also a tread over in the TJ forum on filters and oil if you're interested. FYI only http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/what-oil-filters-613256/

Thanks. I changed the oil and filter, put in exactly 4.5qt. I took it for a short spin, then let the engine cool for about 15 minutes.

The oil level on the dipstick was exactly in the middle of the "safe" marker.
