14-15 quarts is right if I remember correctly. And there's no need to change the HPOP oil, just drain the pan, change the filter, and refill.

only way to screw up an oil change is to forget to put the plug back in the pan

Typical cummins owner.

ive seen a procedure for evacuating and changing the hpop oil and the vid said the motor oil was fresh but the oil that came out of the hpop was NASTY!!. dont know how true this is and have allways wondered.it was on powerstrokehelp.com but the long and short is evacuate hpop, fill(about 1 quart),run truck for a min ,repeat, do this three times then fill hpop the last time with prolong or standadine or similar product. i myself have never done this and often wondered if anyone on the org has?

It's often deemed unnessecary by the guys on this site (tho I'm sure it won't hurt anything to do so). That oil should mix with the rest of the new eng. oil after several minutes anyways. Also, start with 12 quarts on your '95, that's how much my old '94 took.

i always forget what i put in. i remember i changed something, like 14 qts, then thre remailing in the filter (more than a qt) or something to that effect. but finalyl i got a combo right, and i didnt overfill, and 4k later it was still full, as wher ebefor ei thoguht it was burning 1 to 2 qts between changes. but again, i always forget how that goes...

Changing / flushing the HPOP made a big difference in the 97. Over 3k and the oil is still golden. Smoothed the engine out a bit.
