16 quarts is too much oil!!!

Your truck should hold between 14.5 and 15 quarts. It should only be filled to between one third and halfay up the crosshatch cold. It should NEVER be about the halfway area of the crosshatch cold, NEVER......

You could be dealing with an issue called foaming due to an overfilled oil condition. If your at the top of the crosshatch cold, you will show almost a quart overfull warm.....something to think about anyway....i wont garantee its your problem though
