4 Quarts. Putting 5 quarts of oil into an engine that only holds 4 quarts is wrong. I dont car if the oil is 5W30, 5W20, 10W40, 10W30, or anything else. 4 quarts are 4 quarts.

If you put too much in the crank will dip into the tank and mix the oil up into a frothy goo which doesn't help lubrication.

Most four bangers, including every Escort motor I've seen takes 4 quarts.
