changing all the oil

I had a guy tell me when you change your oil, you need to pull the plug and run the motor till the low oil sensor shuts it off so that it gets the oil out of the top of the motor. I think that is crazy, anybody heard of that?

Your instincts are correct, that guy is crazy. These trucks run off of high pressure oil and are difficult to start/run rough for 50 miles after the system is completely drained. You would just be asking for trouble listening to that guy. The closest thing is taking the plug off the HPOP reservoir and sucking the oil out of it but even that's not necessary.

i bet he looked at your truck and said, "man it looks like you already deleted your egr"

don't ever do what that guy says lol

there is 15 quarts of oil, if you don't get 1 quart out big deal. it all gets recirculated.

the guy knowns absolutely nothing about the 7.3. there is no low oil sensor and the truck will not even try to run if it's 2 or 3 quarts low.

drain plug out, filter out, fill new filter, install new filter, drain plug back in and pour in about 14 quarts. rotella T6 or any synthetic diesel oil works wonders on these engines. the injectors work much better
