Re: engine oil capacity
You have filled it up too much .
Wipe the dipstick clean and put it back in .
Have a good look where the level of the oil is .
If it is right , the oil that you have used is too thick and therefore creates the clutch to "stick '
One solution is to drain the entire content of oil , Have a good look at the amount required and fill it back to desire level with adequate new oil .

your best bet is to put in 3 quarts then see if there is anything showing on the dipstick if not add another quart at a time until you see something or it's at the fill level on the dipstick. when I do this I leave the dipstick either out completely or half out so oil doesn't splash up on it while pouring in that was I don't have to wipe it each time. typically from the bottom of the dipstick to the max fill line is one to 1.5 quarts, so don't worry about overfilling if you are checking between each quart. And if you buy 5 quarts and you have an extra, just save it for the next oil change.
You have a problem. Do not start that engine until you figure out what has happened. The capacity is less than 5 quarts with an oil filter change and only 4 without. I suspect that you may be pouring the oil into the wrong area and have made a big error. Oil should show on the dip stick at about 2-3 quarts.
if it is a gas engine it should use 5 quarts, unless it has a heavy duty oil cooling system, then it may need up to seven quarts. Fill the motor with the first five quarts, the check the oil level with the oil dipstick. If its still low add one half of a quart at a time while checking level each time you add a half quar untill it show full on the oil dipstick..
Since I believe the total oil capacity would be about 1.1 liter (not much more than a quart), you probably over filled it now. When the low oil light comes on, it is supposed to stop. Which it did. So there was unlikely any harm. But it probably still had half a quart in it, and not it probably have over 1.5 quarts. If the piston can hit the oil, it will blow the bearings. Unfortunately I can't find a manual to see capacity for sure. And there is a diesel as well as gasoline version. So all I can suggest is to drain all the oil, see how much you have in it, and put in just the right amount. There should be a full level or dipstick (probably with pint marks you mistook for quarts).
With a filter change along with the changing of oil. I would start with four quarts, than start the engine let it run for a second. After that turn it of check the oil, and top off as necessary. Roughly guessing I would say it holds about 4 1/4 quarts. Or could take up to five, its safe to start engine after four quarts. BE SURE to start engine after four quarts for 10-20 seconds, and then turn off to recheck. Too much oil can be catastrophic. (if no oil is showing on the dipstick than it is more than one quart low. The lowest point on dipstick represents one quart low, the middle is half a quart, and full is full) :)
Most vehicles when changing oil uses 5 quarts of oil. I believe that is any vehicle even trucks after you have drained the old oil out of it and is changing your oil. It should last a good 5 months but it is best to change your oil about every 3 months. that is what we do around here and we have 4 vehicles
