Boxing how much oil goes in a 1750tbi?

im embarrassed to ask as im a mechanic but this is starting to annoy me

i know the capacity is 5.1 litres, but ive changed the oil twice recently and it always reads over full on the dipstick.
last time i put in 4 litres, then started the engine to fill up the filter. i got the message insufficient oil so i stopped it. it took 5 litres before the message went, now i checked it the dipstick this morning and its reading over, again!

please help

Every time I've had my cars serviced over the years they always comes back with an oil level way above the 'max' mark, no matter where it's been serviced.
Have often wondered why nobody seems capable of getting it right .
