SOURCE: oil capacity
To the best of my knowledge the capacity is 6qts with filter change. But...I would use 5qts, start it up and circulate oil, then add additional qt if needed. A tip on oil filters...wipe some oil on gasket to keep it from adhering to filter pad when installing. Also, if position installed allows, pre fill filter with oil before starting...dosen't have to be really full, but any oil in there is less air that hast to be expelled before oil reaches crankshaft.

SOURCE: oil leak in my 92 jeep cherokee
The most likely place for an engine to start leaking oil (when it's coming from the top and not the bottom) is around the valve covers -- the gasket goes bad. Next most likely is camshaft seals.
Sometimes just tightening the valve cover botls will stop it or at least reduce it.

You'll need to determine if the oil pressure is actually changing, or if the sending unit or gauge is lying to you. Be certain the oil level is up to normal, then check the actual oil pressure with a test gauge. If the pressure varies (drops) at engine idle, perhaps your pressure bypass is defective, or perhaps the oil pump is worn. Testing with a known good pressure gauge should lead you in the right direction.
