2000 f-150 How many quarts of oil

Hello,

I just got my 2000 f-150 4.6 litre from a friend. No manual was in the car. How many quarts of oil should I put in.


Thanks

Mike

My book from a 1998 quotes six quarts of oil. My suggestion, put four in, check it. Add a fifth quart. Check it, start it to get it circulating. And then check it again. Probably will need the sixth.

My manuel from my 97 says 6 quarts. Like Kijutsu said, just put about four or so and keep checking it from there till you find the sweet spot.

Just dump in 6qts, and she will be right at the top mark on the dip stick.

Actually, for most of these engines, 6 quarts will put the level about midway in the "O.K." range. That's why the dealers will often charge you for 7. If you feel the need to be full-up, you will probably need 6-1/2 qts.; but as the manual states, 6 quarts is adequate.

If your dipstick shows full with 6 quarts, you may have some sludge build up in the pan, or the oil did not drain completely. To a point, this is no cause for alarm.

Mine takes 6.5 quarts but I just quoted what the manuel says, cause 6 will put it in the safe range but 6.5 tops it off to the full line.
