6.1 qts, are you leaking it that fast?

I hope not. Does it need time before it registers on the stick?

Since you didn't remove the oil filter, then 5 qts. would get you up to range. Best time to check level is around 5mins after turning the engine off. Something isn't right.

Should I take it in? If so, oil change or mechanic?

I'd have a competent mechanic look it over for you.

Thank you. I appreciate the help.
