1 Fill the engine up with oil to the full mark on the dipstick.
2. When you're ready with everything else, start and run the engine for say four or five minutes and then cut it off.
3. After it sits for around 5 minutes, check the oil again and top off if needed.
Don't be concerned about the volume going through the oil cooler.
The oil pump will pump it through and the dipstick mark will allow for the volume (especially after you check it and top up if needed).
Hope this helps.
