Your engine should take about 8 quarts, the info is in your owner's manual also though. Be sure and change the filter also when you change the oil.
Also, since you have an 86 300E, M103 motor, I would consider using a higher weight oil (2nd number) , like 15w 40 , or 10w 40 , or 20W 50 , depending on your climate. I say this because higher weight oil burns less. And your motor probably consumes oil.
