If you have a 3.8 liter - 232 cubic inch engine your motor is supposed to have 4.8 quarts of oil *if you use an AC-Delco PF 47 short oil filter.
I have found on this motor that you can use five full quarts *if you use an AC-Delco PF 52 which is a longer higher capacity oil filter.

go back to the auto parts store where you bought the oil and find the guy you told you to but in five quarts of oil bend him over and kick him as hard as you can,it only takes 4 quarts of oil.just about all cars take 4 quarts unless it has a big block in it then it takes 5 quarts,and the only cars now a days that have big block or trucks
