14 quarts of oil for oil change
With filter replacement, 14 quarts brings the level to the top of the hash marks on the plastic bulb. I changed the oil two days ago on level land, loosened the filter cap, let it drain to the pan, removed the pan drain pan, let it drain for over half an hour and that was with a very warm engine. When I poured in the new oil, I poured in 14 quarts of Motorcraft diesel 15w-40. Started the engine let it idle for 10 minutes or so, checked for leaks, shut it down, rechecked level an hour later. Yup, the level was right at the top of the hash marks on the plastic bulb. My personal opiniion, 15 quarts is too much. Many reporting their 6.4 making oil, level showing overfull, are you pouring in 15 quarts??? I think 15 quarts too much, whatever others say. I suspect if I poured in 15 quarts, the level would indicate quite a ways up, far past the plastic bulb.
