Oil & Fuel Filter Changes

Got this from a Ford dealer's website. Just got through reading some posts on here where it was unclear as to how oil was being monitored, etc. so I thought it would be helpful to share:

INTELLIGENT OIL LIFE MONITOR SYSTEM (IOLM) – 6.7L Diesel
This system uses information from a sensor in the oil pan, the Powertrain Control Module and an algorithm to calculate the proper oil change interval. The interval is calculated based upon the vehicle operating conditions:



Engine speed & torque
Oil & Coolant temperature
Hours of operation and Mileage (Idle Hours and Total Hours)
Driving habits
Number of Diesel Particulate Filter regens or cleaning cycles


The system uses the Message Center to display when the oil needs to be changed:

“ENGINE OIL CHANGE SOON” at 5% oil life remaining
“OIL CHANGE REQUIRED” at 0% oil life remaining


FUEL FILTERS
The IOLM system applies to fuel filter replacement. At the 3rd oil change interval the IOLM system will notify the driver that the fuel filters must be replaced. Additionally, there is a sensor in the fuel line that informs the driver, via the instrument cluster, that the filter is becoming plugged before the 3rd oil change interval.
