Start it, watch the oil pressure gauge, when it stabilizes, shut it down, wait a minute or so, pull out dipstick and wipe clean, then check the oil level, it should be in the normal range, if not add oil until it is there.

check the engine oil capacity for that year/model. Mine is an 05 same motor and it takes 6 quarts.
