I have a 92 F-150 with the 5.0. I changed the oil the other day, I put 5 qts. and the dipstick and it still shows that I'm still a qt. low. I looked at the owners manual and it said it takes 5 qts. So how many should I put in it? Thanks, Jeff.
[quote=mstngmikegt;6883697]What he said. My 95 takes 6 (with filter). Manual for my 95 confirms this....says 5 or 6 (with a filter change). Side thought...who the hell changes oil and doesn't change the filter?!?!?[/quote
At our shop we change the filter any time we have to dump the oil, its only like a few bucks and you might as well. With syn and the longer oil changes id have to say ud better change it. My boss wants 4k with the semi-syn that we have in a huge tank, and 5K on full-syn and diesel oil changes. I do 3K on what we use in most cars caus thats just me, and ill do like 4 on the syn and diesel just caus thats also me. Id do 3 on the diesel if i could caus that stuff gets so nasty, but with the Fords takin 15 qt, and the chevs/dodge taking 9-12 and at 89.99 we cant do it like that lol.
I tend to do 7 to 10k miles on the full syn. I had a girlfriend once who's dad only changed the filter every other oil change. Thought he was saving money. It worked for them her car had well over 250k miles on when it finally died.
