Newbeeeeee

Sorry, Im sure this has been answered 110 times but how in the heck do you change the oil and filter in a 2006 6.0l. I have looked for the instructions but cannot find them. Any help would be much appreciated. By the way...pictures are ALWAYS a plus

on top of the motor there is two canisters the one of the left is the oil filter take the cap of(i think it is a 36mm but not positive) the filter will come out with the cap, just pop it off and through it a way. wipe out the cap with a towel and replace the oring on the cap,and snap in the new filter. go down under the vehicle take the plug out of the pan(13mm). wait for it to drain. and put the plug back in. now put the filter back in tightening the cap to 25ft/lbs and put 15 qts of oil in it.

i would advise you to get a motorcraft filter since you only have to pay a few dollars more for you to know you are getting the right filter.
