Oil change and filter

Getting ready to do an oil/filter change on my newly purchased 2005 Excursion PSD. What oil and weight do you guys recommend on a truck with 148000 miles? Also, what is the part number for the ford oil filter?

Thanks,
Brando

15-40 diesel engine oil (Rotella is good) and Motorcraft FL 2016 oil filter. Everyone has their preference on the "brand" of motor oil, but stick with the Motorcraft filter.

Thanks, I always use Mobil 1 synthetic on my cars. Are they good to use on diesel trucks?

Thanks,

No they don't they sell motocraft filters. Go to riffraff diesel.com they sell racor filters for cheap buy them in bulk so you are not paying for shipping each time.

FL 2016

Ready to do my oil change. Purchased Rotella T6 from Wal-Mart and also found Motorcraft FL2016 filter for $19.99. Is there a special procedure for getting the 14-15 quarts of oil out or is it just normal. Remove drain plug, let drain, remove oil filter,re-install drain plug and filter, and fill with new oil.

Thanks,
Brando

You got it. And just an FYI, its 15 quarts. The hpop holds oil too but it is circulated through as you run. You're all good.

If you haven't done it yet, change the filter first, then drain the oil pan. The oil in the oil filter housing will drain to the oil pan once you open it up.

Well....how did it go?
I remember my first oil change....and that smell; that diesel oil smell....It smells like....victory.
Tell us about it and what you might have learned....
Inquiring minds and all that.
