OIl and fuel filter change prices

i just called my local ford dealership. their prices were prett high for routine maintance I though.
OIl change $102
Fuel Filter Change $89
Total with tax $214


What are you guys paying for oil and fuel filter changes. I think i am going to change the oil myself. How much oil and what oil do I need. I looked at the fuel filter and would rather not get covered in diesel. Should I shop around and see if a non-dealer shop will change my fuel filter for cheaper. MY fuel filter has 10,000 miles on it so i am going to push it off for the time being. Just curious to who does it their selves or has toher shops do it for cheaper. This kind of stuff amkes me miss my v10 lol. it was cheap and reliable but dont have near the power of a diesel.

15 quarts. Buy Motorcraft filters (fuel/oil).

Changing your fuel filters is not that hard, just loosen the bleeder plug and remove filter on frame rail, you shouldn't get very much fuel on you or the ground, be sure to cycle the key at least 10 times to purge your system.

Oil is a no brainer as well, 5 gallon bucket and pour into a container to recycle.

DO IT YOURSELF!

3 5qt jugs Motorcraft 15w-14 $11.67 per 5qt jug
Motorcraft fuel filter kit $49.99
Motorcraft oil filter $19.99


So roughly 36 + 50 + 20 = 106 + tax = one hell of a savings!

awesome guys. I am cheap and would rather save 100 dollars. My dealership did my first 3 services for free and one fuel filter. Now that I got to start paying for the stuff I am doing it myself lol. Thanks for all the help. I am going to look into the fuel filter and get the oil and change it myself. Any place in particular you guys buy the oil and filter from. Is motocraft a dealer only oil. Im guessing I got to buy all this stuff from my local delaer correct

I always used Frame or Donaldson filters and Rottlea oil. Rottlea oil is good stuff.
