Exclamation 6.7 HELP

I bought a 2011 f350 6.7 about two months ago and I am now due for my first oil change and I was wondering was it anything special that I should do as for as what kind of oil or do I use the recommended motorcratft oil? I'm new to the 6.7 so any help will be greatly appreciated not only about the oil change but anything I should do to keep my truck running long and strong?

Do all your scheduled maintenance per your owners manual. Drain your water separator as often as you can. ( I do mine every time I fill up)

I have everything done at the dealership for records and warranty reasons. So motorcraft fluids is all I get.

Use the Motorcraft 5w-40 full syn oil. I also use the Motorcraft cetane boost with ever fill up.

Watch out when you drain it. Get a huge tub so you don't miss

I don't know how the separators are on 2010 and older trucks. But on 2011+ you only need a bottle. I use a 20oz pepsi bottle every time, and have not spilt a drop.

Make sure you choose an oil that is CJ4 rated. Not all oil works in diesel engines. The oil designed for gas engines will not suspend the soot that a diesel produces.

Your owners manual will suggest different weights of oil depending on your operational temps and type of work you doing.

Shell Rotella, Chevron Delo 400 are two of the more popular oils. Also you can find the Motorcraft diesel oil in places like Walmart also.

Your engine holds 13 qts. So your drain pan should be able to hold that much. I usually use a 5 gallon bucket. It fits under the truck and comes really close to the bottom of the drain pan, So you can catch the start of the stream when it is really gushing and the last part of the stream when it's just a dribble.

I also usually "Punch" my oil filter and let it drain before I try and remove it. It can make a real mess if it's full of oil and you are trying to spin it off.
