that shouldnt be an issue. if you dont the first or second oil change you do will work as well.

Buy vc-9 at dealer, around $25 per quart. You need 2 for a flush. Also, you might want to do a search on "Restore" . I've read that it gets rid of the silicates the Ford coolant drops out. And the silicates plug the oil cooler.

And here is a list of threads you might want to keep around.:

It is the used oil that you want to have analysed. That will let you know if anything abnormal is happening in your engine.

As stated the VC-9 is a coolant flush intended to remove iron and mineral deposits from the cooling system.

Restore is formulated specifically for clearing out silicate sludge.

Restore Plus is the same thing as VC-9.

The "old" oil is still in your truck now? Yes having it analyzed will help you to know the current state of your engine and how the oil is doing.
