oil change.

I just changed my oil on my truck, I have one question, does the 13.1 qts include the one that I put in the filter, if so that means I only need to put in just 12 qts right, this might sound stupid but I was just wondering. Thanks

Not stupid at all. You are correct, 13 quarts total. There's a neat little valve you can buy that screws into your drain plug so when you change the oil it won't come out all over you. Someone who has one might chime in for further details.

The drain plug wasn't to bad but the filter was a pain, I always do my own oil changes but never had to fill the filter first. Thanks for the help Stroker 8

I just bought a used 2011 and the dealer changed the oil before I bought it. I haven't looked at the directions in the book for changing the oil yet, but by what I'm reading hear they want you to fill the new filter with oil before installing it on the truck. I have 2 questions, why and is this really necessary?

much more to come

Ive always done this and was taught as a little kid to fill the filters before installation. Ive always assumed it was to help the system build pressure faster and to get oil up into the motor instead of having to take the time to fill the filter first.

does make sense, but I've never done it with any of my equipment. I thought maybe this was something specific for the 6.7

Same here. Any filter you can fill before installing helps the oil system react faster after a full drain.

I thought the same thing, I never have filled the filter on any other car or truck that I have changed the oil on.

Unless you already know this, next time you change your own oil, take a center punch to the bottom of the oil filter before removing it. Makes life easier.
