Oil capacity

Hello all,
I am at the point of my first oil change on my newly acquired 2002 F350 Powerstroke Diesel. What is the capacity with filter change for this engine? How many quarts should I buy?

Thanks for the info.

Re: Oil capacity

I buy 4 GALLONS and use most of it. Any left over I keep in a tool box in the bed of the truck.

Re: Oil capacity

Sit down as you read this. The 7.3 with no mods (you can get a larger oil pan) holds 15 quarts. Yup, 1 shy of four gallons. Be sure to fill up your new filter before putting it on the truck and it holds about two quarts.

Good luck and welcome to the site.

And you'll be one quart overfull.

I buy 4 gallons, and be sure the engine is warm before I begin.

First step is to pour one quart into a clean empty quart oil container, then seal up that one quart and put it back until around the 4,000-mile point, when mine usually needs that one more quart.

Second step is to turn the new oil filter in the box so the hole is looking up. Then fill the filter full of new oil - almost two quarts. Keeping the new filter in the box until just before you're ready to screw it on helps prevent uh-ohs!

Next, loosen the oil filter to be certain it will come off.

Next I use a long skinny flat-tip screwdriver and a claw hammer and punch a small hole in the bottom of the old oil filter. Take a break while the filter drains. Then remove the old filter and screw on the new filter.

Be sure your drain pan will hold almost 4 gallons of used oil. A 5-gallon bucket works for me.

Then pull the drain plug (or rotate your Fumoto drain valve) and let it drain. Collect a mid-stream oil sample of about two ounces to send to Blackstone Oil Analysis. Take a long break and let it drain really, really good.

Then install the drain plug (or close the Fumoto valve), and fill it up with what remains in the 4 gallon jugs of new oil.

Clean up your mess, properly recycle the old oil, and celebrate.

I did mine Sunday morning. That's about the 30th oil change on Sierra Blanca, and she's still runnin' strong. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/warmsmile.gif[/img]

An if you don't already have a Fumoto oil-drain valve, get one before your next oil change. http://www.fumotovalve.com/

Re: Oil capacity

I just changed mine 2 days ago [only 10th. time for me]. It always takes 15 qts. to fill it.

Re: Oil capacity

I cheat and use 14 quarts, so I have the left over half gallon for the next oil change.
