16quarts v. 15quarts. I know....

I know I know. Really should have asked BEFORE I did it, but it's done. Last oil change, I just dumped the entire 4 gallons rather than metering out that last quart and having leftovers. Really, is there a problem with that? I know about too much oil and the problems it can cause, but I'm figuring with the size of this thing, the one extra quart won't cause problems. If there is, I'll drain the one quart. I have 122k on the clock. Runs well except for the leaky egr coolers which I'll get to soon. I live in NorVa so I can't delete them.

How high is it on the stick? I would definitely drain it out because with you having the dpf intact has the risk of making oil due to fuel slipping by the rings during regen. If you have an extra quart of oil which is a decent amount, plus if you have lets say 10 regens at the least over 5000 miles, how much of that fuel is making it to the crank case? Just an idea that I wouldn't risk but do what you want

I would drain also

you don't want to aerate the oil
or risk a runaway if yours is an oil maker like suggested

So you want to risk a $10,000 motor because you are too lazy to measure out the exact amount of oil that Ford indicates your engine needs??!!! Aerating or oil foaming would be a HUGE risk that can and will destroy your engine.

Because of visual inspections. During an inspection, the tech is suppose to verify the placement of factory emissions equipment. So, if they are removed, I'd fail the "visual" portion. Or so that is what I had learned. And I don't have the time now to look for an inspection station that would kindly overlook that.
