The 6.7-liter diesel v8 engine in the Ford F350 holds 13 quarts of oil.
How much oil does a Ford 6.7 diesel hold?
The overall oil capacity of the Ford 6.7L powerstroke engine is 13 quarts, including the capacity of the oil filter. Normal-usage trucks and vehicles with a 6.7 powerstroke engine should use oil with a 10w-30 rating.
What kind of oil does a Ford F350 diesel take?
For routine use, the manufacturer recommends 10W-30, and for more demanding tasks, 5W-40. When using biodiesel fuel mixes (B20 maximum), 5W-40 or 15W-40 oil is recommended.
How much oil does a F350 6.7 take?
The oil capacity of the 2017 Ford F-350 6 7 powerstroke is 13 quarts. Your oil will ultimately need to be replenished. A decent rule of thumb is to change your oil every 5,000 to 10,000 miles. If you don’t replace it, the engine will have problems.
How many quarts of oil does a 2018 f350 take?
For routine use, the manufacturer recommends 10W-30, and for more demanding tasks, 5W-40. When using biodiesel fuel mixes (B20 maximum), 5W-40 or 15W-40 oil is recommended. 13-quart capacity (with filter) Check the oil level after refilling.
What oil is recommended for 6.7 Powerstroke?
The Ford/Motorcraft lubricant oil filter comes with a silicone anti-drainback valve and is highly recommended.
Examine the condition of the o-ring seal and replace as needed, or replace if the top of the cap begins to deteriorate.
If the dipstick is kinked, does not enter/exit the dipstick tube smoothly, or is broken, it should be replaced.
Motor Oil Requirements & Recommendations
Because the engine oil needs for the 6.7L Power Stroke are a little complicated, let’s start with some background information. Ford required API CJ-4 engine oil when the 6.7L Power Stroke was launched for the 2011 model year. This is a low-ash formulation with performance qualities that include protection against DPF clogging and deposits in EGR coolers and valves, among other things. The API CK-4 specification was introduced in 2016 by the American Petroleum Institute, and it is expected to outperform the CJ-4 specification. However, Ford Motor Company discovered that CK-4 oil compositions did not always match Ford’s wear protection criteria, and CJ-4 formulations were superior in this category (you can view the memo from Ford here).
Ford required WSS-M2C171-D engine oil for the 2011 model year, but this spec is used interchangeably with API CJ-4 in the owner’s manual. Ford required WSS-M2C171-E engine oil for the 2012 to 2016 model years, but this spec is used interchangeably with API CJ-4 in the owners manual. Ford has mandated an engine oil that fulfills the WSS-M2C171-F1 specification for the 2017 – current model year; this spec is used interchangeably with API CJ-4 in the owners manual.
The upshot here is that Ford WSS-M2C171-F1 spec engine oils meet CK-4 standards, however not all CK-4 standards fulfill the Ford WSS specification.
To summarize, all 6.7L Power Stroke diesel owners should use a motor oil that fulfills the Ford WSS-M2C171-F1 specification, which replaces prior Ford specifications and ensures maximum engine wear prevention as well as exhaust aftertreatment system compatibility. For all applications within its temperature range, we highly recommend Amsoil Max Duty Signature series 5W-40; it satisfies Ford standards and provides additional protections against fuel dilution and engine damage while delivering outstanding cold flow characteristics.
Is it OK to run 15w40 in 6.7 Powerstroke?
Become a Premium Member. In 90% of all temperature ranges, 15w-40 oil would suffice for the 6.7l. However, as the temperature drops below zero, the synthetic shines brightly. I would, however, consult your owner’s manual.
